FOUNDATION FOR SECOND CHANCES
April 19, 2011

I have been working with Foundation for Second Chances (FFSC) for the past 3 years, volunteering with the their Community Initiatives Events (Gift of Giving, Health Festival, Community Beautification Projects). FFSC is an outstanding agency with a really wonderful and fun group of volunteers. Their staff is very personable and warm, and makes the organization feel more like a lovely family to be a part of versus just another nonprofit. I have volunteered with various nonprofits where I feel like just another face in the crowd, but with FFSC I feel truly recognized and valued. What I also love about FFSC is that they really care about the children and families in their community. At each community event I've attended they really go out of their way to make their clients feel special and cared for. You should see the faces on the children at the Gift of Giving event...it's priceless. The event offers the kids everything from face painting, cookie decorating, a visit with Santa, sports and games, a gourmet meal, card and Christmas tree decorating, and Christmas gifts for all the kids. So much fun! They also do an amazing job with their community beautification projects--murals, flowers, community gardens, painting, trash pick-up. Their work makes such a difference and it is truly great to be a part of it!
