I was very sad to read the review listed for our charity. I am a board member along with the President. I am so sorry she felt that way, I know I have been going through a lot with my husband fighting leukemia and going through a bone marrow transplant and have not been handling things the way they should be handled.
I wish I could give this organization five stars. I volunteered for nearly three years, crocheting and mailing angels to help give others hope and comfort. I love the work they do and believe they are genuinely helping others and have great intentions. Reading the appreciative comments left by recipients on their guestbook was what motivated me to join. So, it made me sad that when I sent a polite volunteer withdrawal notice, I received a very callous response and not a single kind word for three years toward an organization that asks more of its volunteers than most others. All they cared about was the fact that I hadn't been able to complete my one last angel assignment. I would have overlooked the lack of appreciation, but to be treated disdainfully was beyond unnecessary. How could I consider returning after this?
Overall, I think the actual work done makes a good impact, and my experience was mostly ok. I don't want anyone to personally feel bad because they seem like mostly nice people, but I hope they'll remember to treat their volunteers more thoughtfully.
