Review for Things of My Very Own, Scotia, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

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.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

seeing the happy faces of the children.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

get them more funding. There is a desperate need for more money, more supplies for needy children and mothers.

Would you volunteer for this group again?


For the time you spent, how much of an impact did you feel your work or activity had?

A lot

Did the organization use your time wisely?

Very Well

Would you recommend this group to a friend?


When was your last experience with this nonprofit?


What one change could this group make that would improve your volunteer experience?

I wish they could afford to hire me because then I'd spend all my time making deliveries on their behalf.

Did your volunteer experience have an effect on you? (teaching you a new skill, or introducing new friends, etc.)

I've become closer to the organization's owner. I cherish the friendship with a genuine, caring individual.

How did this volunteer experience make you feel?


Role:  Volunteer & I attended an event as a character in costume to promote their cause, and provided transport of supplies on multiple occasions.
