Review for WINGS FOR SUCCESS, Frazer, PA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I started volunteering with Wings for Success about three years ago. I was drawn to their mission and impressed by the volunteer energy and resources that keep the agency running. Wings offers free programs to women in need to provide work-related apparel as well as employment related workshops and personalized guidance to help build the confidence needed to obtain and sustain employment. I am truly amazed by the impact the agency has on the lives of clients we serve--over 11,000 since the agency was founded 20 yeas ago. I am also impressed that the programs and services are coordinated by just three part-time employees and a team of over 120 volunteers who help in all areas of operations from working as personal clothing stylists, to helping with clothing and closet maintenance, office support, and client transportation and coordinating fund-raising, community outreach and communications support. This volunteer involvement and dedication is truly a testament to what a community can do by working together to help one another.

Review for WINGS FOR SUCCESS, Frazer, PA, USA

Rating: 4 stars  

I have been involved with Wings for Success for about two years. . One of the things that impresses me most about Wings for Success is that this is an almost entirely volunteer-run organization. With only two part-time employees at two locations, the agency provides services to hundreds of clients each year with support from a team of approximately 120 volunteers who donate over 9,000 hours of their time and talents. This a community-based organization with volunteers supporting everything from consulting with clients on wardrobe to planning fund-raising events, general management and committee work to day to day operations. It feels good to volunteer with an organization that truly puts its resources to helping women who are looking for financial stability and self-sufficiency and is making such a difference in the community. Every client I speak with, tells what a difference Wings has made in their lives.
