Review for United Community Ministries, Inc., Alexandria, VA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have been donating money and goods to UCM for years because of the work it does to help feed needy people and help them become self sufficient. This need increased greatly after 9/11 when many local, low-wages were laid off, but UCM stepped up to meet the need. I vowed I would become more active when I retired from government, and now I am on the board. As a board member I have come to appreciate UCM even more because of the wide range of programs it offers to people in crisis and need.

Role:  Board Member & I went on the board with the specific goal of helping UCM with fundraising and being able to cement its role in the community even further.
