Review for Concern Foundation, Los Angeles, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I've been a volunteer with Concern since 1982. We were called Concern II back then and we were the 'kids' of the parent organization Concern Foundation. To join a group of pioneers where young people started an organization to get other young people involved and truly pay it forward before anyone knew what that meant, was a privilege and honor. We have since merged with our parent organization and now we see kids and grand-kids involved. To say that Concern has put smiles on kids faces during the most challenging of times is an understatement and I am so glad that I do what I can and witness those special memorable moments. Derek Alpert has always said it best, we want to be put out of business...G-d hoping in our lifetime. Until then Thank G-d for this organization and the amazing members that give so much of themselves and yet the return is immeasurable when you see the smiles and see the healing!
