My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for United Community Ministries, Inc., Alexandria, VA, USA
I have donated to and volunteered for UCM over many years. I keep coming back to UCM because all of the efforts stay right in our community. I feel like their clients receive my donations rather than the money being spent on sending me address labels, cards and the like. I believe something like 94 cents of every dollar contributed goes directly to those who need it. Volunteering has also made me realize that there is true need right in my neighborhood and UCM does all that it can to meet those needs.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
...seeing needy and homeless people walk out the door with food for their families, money for heating fuel, clothes for a job interview, backpacks with school supplies, etc.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
...help them modernize their equipment for greater efficiency.
