My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for United Community Ministries, Inc., Alexandria, VA, USA
We donate to UCM both personally (financially and through food donations) and through our church. Every year we use our annual holiday party to get food donations for UCM -- last year alone with the help of friends and family attending our party, we were able to donate over 300 pounds of food. We do so because we believe in the good work that UCM does to serve families in need along the Route 1 corridor in Alexandria.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
seeing the effects it has one the people they serve, and through the great reporting they do back to donors.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
build a stronger financial base through personal donations and grants, and link it more with local civic associations so that these associations "buy in" to helping their neighbors through UCM.
