PARAMEDICS FOR CHILDREN INC
November 27, 2010
As a person who has worked in the non-profit & medical field for many, many years, I can tell you first hand that Paramedics For Children is one of the most effective organizations I have ever run across.
I have worked as a fundraiser, volunteer, paramedic and board member for many organizations, but several years ago made a decision to support PFC completely. The way that donations are utilized, the lack of salaries paid out, the dedication of the staff are exemplory and beyond reproach. I have no idea how they do what they do.
After only being in business for 13 years, this charity has made great strides in education, healthcare, children's issues as well as stimulating the local economy. Paramedics For Children subscribes to the notion of "teaching a man to fish". Bravo, as this approach has made all of their programs, with the exception of school supplis, self-sustaining.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
Over the years of volunteering with PFC, I have seen on return trips, the growth of the children. I have seen the drop-out rates at the numerous mountain schools decline as a direct result of the efforts of PFC.
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
Not interfere one darn bit with the day to day operations. If I could change one thing, it would be to heighten the awareness so that PFC could be better funded.
