My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Loaves & Fishes Family Kitchen, San Jose, CA, USA
I've been volunteering at Loaves and Fishes on a weekly basis for 2 years now and it has become a highlight of my week! The clients are very thankful for a warm meal and a safe place to rest. In the time I've been there, I've gotten to know the clients and they know me well enough to ask about my family. I'm impressed with how this organization treats its clients and how they care enough to make sure meals are healthy and filling. I hope to continue volunteering for a long time!
Review for Second Harvest Food Bank of Santa Clara and San Mateo Counties, San Jose, CA, USA
I volunteer monthly at SHFB and always leave feeling better than when I arrived. We sort & box produce, label cans, sort barrel donations, or whatever is needed when we get there. When my daughter turned 14 she started volunteering with me and now has an appreciation for giving back to the community. I also volunteer for a couple partner agencies so I see where boxes of produce end up as it's repacked for distribution or prepared as a meal. When I see where this food ends up, I fully appreciate the broad impact of SHFB. It's been at least 8 years since I started volunteering at SHFB and I hope to continue for many more.
Review for Sunday Friends Foundation, San Jose, CA, USA
I'm always awed by the programs offered to Sunday Friends families. There are opportunities to improve English, learn about health & nutrition, vision screenings, and bicycle safety clinics just to name a few. Sunday Friends gives parents the tools to improve their lives and those of their children.
