My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Cumac Echo, Inc., Paterson, NJ, USA
Working here during summer vacation really changed me as a person, being in charge of many responsibilities, and receiving the same amount of respect everyone got! Although it's a pretty big facility, all the staff was so amazingly nice, and really helped me feel at ease and get closer to everyone. The work was great. Knowing the direct outcome of your volunteer work motivated me to work harder and with more pride.
I found how many people really live without the basic necessities, showing me really how lucky I am, and what a great opportunity I had in being able to lend a hand. The people really seem to care about the people in need, often striking up personal conversations and getting friendly with regulars. It was a great experience!
