Review for Wings Program, Inc., Palatine, IL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have been a volunteer at WINGS for years and not only are the women and children who use our facility greatful for everything that is done for them, but the volunteers are treated great as well. I love doing the back packs at the beginning of the school year. Reminds me of how happy I felt as a kid getting new notebooks and gym shoes, and pencils and markers. I also love to wrap the Christmas presents. We play Christmas music at our holiday site and you feel like one of Santa's helpers for sure. I love to see how generous folks are with their donations for our food pantry and our coat drive. These are much needed items during difficult times in this economy.

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

in seeing the looks on the kids faces when they come in to collect both items that were donated for them or to shop in our food pantry. It just melts my heart that we can do that for them. Oh, the excitement with them trying on the Halloween costumes.

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

Everyone I get to work with. Beth and Beth and Dawn. They have the biggest hearts and a wonderful, kind attitude. They are grateful for the smallest things I do for them (WINGS).

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

Always wonderful. No doubt there.

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

Give a face lift to the office. Add a sink with running water to the kitchen area. (we have to wash dishes in the bathroom sink).

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About every week

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
