Review for Pathways To Volunteering, Canoga Park, CA, USA
I started looking online at meetup groups and was interested in finding volunteer work. I came across the Pathways to Volunteering and decided to try it out. This was over a year ago and I really enjoy working with the people in this group. Craig Shinmon is a wonderful group leader with a huge heart for helping those in need. He finds wonderful opportunities for the group to get involved in.
A couple of activities I was involved in will forever affect me. One of them was handing out food to the homeless at the LA Mission. This was a very humbling experience and everyone in our group worked so well together to get the job done. The other was handing out hygiene kits to homeless in downtown Santa Ana. There were so many people in need and it was hard to turn people away after all the kits were gone. I'd had no idea how many people there were camping out around the courthouse. It made me realize how huge the need really is.
I would highly recommend this group to anyone interested in reaching out to the community, by giving back through support and donating time to helping the needy. If you are looking for a fun and energized group of people look no further. I have not even begun to say enough about this organization.
