Review for Metropolitan New York Coordinating Council on Jewish Poverty, New York, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I am a committed Volunteer with New York Cares.I wanted to participate in the Day in Service for September 11th, but much to my disappointment nothing was unavailable. (As an aside I was thrilled so many people want to help!). While I was searching other avenues for projects, I happened across Met Council. They needed assistance for an Emergency Preparedness Event on September 11th. I contacted them , but they were fully staffed. Kelley Baldwin (Volunteer Coordinator) sensed my desire for involvement, and allowed me to work with her the day prior to the event. She was wonderful, and the seniors I met were delightful. Kelley put me in touch with Julia Sherman ( other fabulous Volunteer Coordinator), who explained additional programs, and I committed to becoming a Phone Pal. I believe I am getting as much out of the program if not more than my Senior friend! Keep up your great work Met Council!
