Review for Volunteers for Veterans Foundation, Fontana, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have been involved with this organization for two (2) years thanks to a close friend that was, and still is, very dedicated to it. At the beginning I knew some of what this organization's work was, but soon learned that what they provided to the veterans was far beyond what you could imagine be accomplished by a small group of individuals. This is a group of extraordinary people who have accomplished so much over the years to help the veterans who pass through the doors of the Jerry L. Pettis Memorial Hospital. Funds generated by this group have provided items large and small for the veterans' needs at the hospital - from replacement television remotes, telephones, wheelchairs and a transporter unit to funding/support of programs which would have been cut/eliminated due to government cutbacks and helping with housing issues encountered by our veterans. The organization's slogan " If you love your freedom, thank a vet" is very true - but it is also true that actions speak louder than words and that is what this group of people is about. They don't just talk about helping, they get out there and do something to ensure our veterans receive the proper care they are entitled to for having served this country.

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

seeing the results of the few helping with the needs of the many.

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

awesome.

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

help out even further with our veterans needs, but even that sum of oney would only be a start.

Ways to make it better...

I had known about this organization much sooner.
