Review for DOROT, Inc., New York, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have been volunteering with DOROT for less than a year and I love it. Every week I visit my "elderly friend" in her home and spend at least 2 hours with her. She recently lost her husband and is often depressed; does not have much family, and is not able to do much on her own anymore - she now has me to kepe her company each week and to talk to, we have a special bond. DOROT is such a special organization for organizing this type of volunteer effort; the elderly population is so often overlooked. Not only does DOROT organize these programs, but also puts together well-organized holiday events and package delivery events for holidays. I plan on being involved with DOROT for many years to come.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

I feel as if each person I interacted with as a volunteer has been wonderful.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Genuinely grateful to each and every volunteer, took the time to introduce themselves and say hello during events.
