I was a volunteer for Habitat for Humanity KC for a short time. It was only a short time due to first to knee problems and then becoming employed again full-time. But I truly enjoyed my volunteer time with this organization! They are a great group and they try to have a good time when working. Everyone is - at a minimum - pleasant; always smiling and very appreciative of the time you dedicate to them. They were also very flexible with that time. When I return to the KC area, I will definitely visit them for more volunteer opportunities!!
A truly satistying experience. A great cause, supportive and accomodating staff; a diverse, interesting and appreciative customer base. Every shift is different, fun and rewarding. I feel useful, appreciated by staff and customers many who greet me by name and "thank you's" are common. Best volunteer experience of my retirement. Looking forward to a continued relationship after almost [I'm told by those who track these things] 1000 hours of volunteering!
I was a volunteer with ReStore for over 5 years. I had a wonderful experience there. I was made to feel like I was an important part of the team and given the training and assistance to enable me to do the work asked of me. The organization is great a recognizing and thanking their volunteers. I will be back as a volunteer again.
