My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Society of St. Vincent de Paul of Alameda County, Oakland, CA, USA
I have volunteered in the St. Vincent dining room in Oakland for the last two years. You can see the fruits of your labor in action: feeding people who are down on their luck. The staff are friendly, appreciative, easygoing and supportive. The volunteers, likewise, care about what they do and enjoy being there. Working at the dining room has become an important and cherished and meaningful part of my life.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
the dining room
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
do more outreach to attract volunteers.
Alfredo, thank you for your kind words and for sharing your experience with the online community! We are always looking for more awesome people like yourself to become regular SVdP volunteers and will continue to do so. Thanks for all you do!
