My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Oakland Livingston Human Service Agency, Pontiac, MI, USA
I am on the board for the OLHSA Walk for Warmth project. I am amazed at the efforts put forth by so many to raise money to heat the homes of those in need. Corporations, small businesses, and individuals team up together to raise thousands of dollars for the cause. This year the demand is greater than ever and contributions are much harder to get. Through the efforts of so many who believe in the charitable work done by OLHSA, they've been very successful in meeting all of their goals.
The day of " The Walk" held in February each year is truly enjoyable, It is usually attended by 700 or more and it is a real fun day while raising contributions for home heating costs.
The sale of the little stuffed animals like bears or the current penguins has always increased donations. They've become a dated collectors item and this sale starts months before the actual day of the walk.
OLHSA always makes their volunteers feel special for every effort they make on their behalf. They are always thanking everyone for whatever help they give. They always make you feel very wanted and needed. People with delinquent heating bills are not the only project being done at OLHSA. This is only one out of 90 Projects!
Great group, well run, great leadership and very succesful.
