My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Lupus Foundation of Northern California, San Jose, CA, USA
I have volunteered at LFNC since I retired nearly 7 years ago. It has been and continues to be an amazing trip. I have watched the organization grow and change as the world around it grows and changes. However, its mission and goals remain consistent. It continues to promote lupus awareness, to educate and provide information to patients, their families and caregivers through conferences, education classes and electronic newsletters. It also continues to support external research through fund raising activities like the 5K Run/Walk or the Gala. Volunteering 7 years ago most often meant filing, folding, stuffing, and mailings. Now, it is much more likely I will be asked to work on the computer, entering and editing data and researching. There are many fun activities to be done. In addition, I have had the opportunity to meet many wonderful people, staff, board members, lupus patients and their families, as well as other volunteers. I look forward to many more years of helping out at this great nonprofit organization.
