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

Rating: 5 stars  

My husband and I have been volunteering for Dorot for many years. Our best experience with them is helping to take some of the elderly people to the cemetary to visit their loved ones. Dorot supplies the car and pick up at their homes. We were escorts and supplied moral support. For most of the elderly they have no other way of getting to the cemetaries since it would be such a long and difficult trip.I don't know of any other organization that provides this kind of service.

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

the look of gratitude from someone we visited or took to the cemetary.

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

knowing that I provided someone with companionship and helped them connect to people that were important in their lives.

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

warm and friendly and willing to help.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

expand and provide service to every borough in NYC.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About every six months

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?

2009

Role:  Volunteer & I was an escort and helped them walk to and find the specific grave site.
