I contacted this organization via email on a Monday, followed by a voicemail message expressing my interest in helping with their advertised need for assistance with their refugee program. Email and voicemail was also followed up with speaking with the receptionist explaining the lack of response. By the end of business day on Thursday, I still had not heard back from anyone. This is very disappointing and disheartening when volunteers are responding to the advertised need and ready to help assist.
