My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Friends Association for Care & Protection of Children, West Chester, PA, USA
Many years ago I was invited to a Friends cocktail party fundraiser where I learned what great work Friends was doing in West Chester and I have been involved ever since with the West Chester Charity Ball as a fundraiser for Friends for over 12 years. When I retired 5 years ago, I was offered an opportunity to help out in doing research for grant money for Friends. I love the idea that what little I can contribute benefits the community where I live, especially for women and children in need.
I have learned so much about homelessness and its impact in our area. It is not all that we see on the streets or see in the media. As a mother, the stories of the families with their children and their struggles breaks your heart . But to see the help and support - financially, emotionally and socially that Friends provides to these families and see the many, many positive outcomes , you cannot help but be moved. I also love working with the wonderful women and men who are part of this organization and am awed by their devotion and commitment.
