TOMO is the absolute best non-profit agency I have ever been associated with, and I have been associated with quite a few! Founder Rayn B. and her board and dedicated, selfless individuals whose sole purpose is to improve the lives of children in need.
I looked for years for a volunteer opportunity that made me feel good. I never felt fulfilled. Until I started spending my free time at Things of My Very Own. Knowing that I am part of an incredible organization that does amazing things for so many children, gave me exactly what I needed. I believed so strongly in this organization that my entire family became involved. I look forward to many more years of seeing Things of My Very Own grow and continue the amazing things they do for children each and every day.
I've been volunteering for TOMVO for several years and am always amazed at the range of aid that is provided along with the devotion and dedication of its Founder, Rayn Boncie. Children and families in our community are very fortunate to have an organization who is as committed to them as TOMVO.
I've volunteered for this organization in two different roles. As a member of the 501st Legion, I attended a Literacy event as a Stormtrooper from Star Wars to entertain the children and attract interest to the cause. As a friend of the organization I've picked up and delivered needed supplies from a retail supplier to the company's owner when the desperate plea was announced online for a driver on multiple occasions.
Rayn Boncie has greatly impacted her community and outlying areas. She genuinely cares about families in crisis situations and will whole heartedly go out of her way to ensure that they are provided with basic resources within 4 hours of contact. Rayn opperates her organization in a manner that is both welcoming and friendly to volunteers while maintaining a professional level.
I had the opportunity to do some volunteer work for this organization as part of the 2012 COSIA Charity Beneficiary Program. Rayn Boncie is doing wonderful work for the community and the children by providing crisis intervention services to abused and/or neglected youth. I wish that more people knew about this organization, so that she could do even more. When abused and/or neglected children are placed in a new environment, it is a great gift to receive a book, toys, clothing, toiletries, and even school supplies. Every kid deserves a few things of their very own especially those children served by this organization.
