Interfaith Community Services
November 30, 2010
Six years ago my husband and I were looking for a way to "give back" to our new community. As new volunteers to ICS, we found the organization offered many choices of how we could do that, including driving seniors to appointments, delivering meals, friendly calls, working in the food bank, sponsoring needy families at holiday time, or serving on committees. We're richer for all the experiences. We know that ICS uses our donated money wisely, and we've watched the organization grow and serve more people as our community needs expanded.
We travel for six months each summer. We have yet to find an organization elsewhere with the programs, caliber, and professional leadership that ICS has. Like the seniors and disadvantaged people in the community, we're lucky to have found ICS.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
When I first volunteered with ICS, about 15 families per day came to the small Food Bank. Now, almost 100 come. ICS used to receive 100 calls per day for financial assistance; now, it's 300. To be able to help ICS serve so many more people looking to them for help has given me great satisfaction.
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
More corporate awareness and support so that organizations can rally around ICS.
