Review for Fun For Cure, Inc., Scarsdale, NY, USA
It is important to make note that in my experience as a volunteer at Fun For Cure, Inc., what I liked the most about it was that there were few volunteers who could produce a lot. I learned that personal motivation is more productive than more personnel. Anyway, another highlight came later in the year, when we held a Fun For Cure, inc. Halloween Party! We spent a great deal of time preparing signs and invitations and decorating for the event; and though the turnout was not as large as anticipated, those who did come and those of us working there had a wonderful time. It was certainly sight-seer in busy downtown Dobbs Ferry.
It was at this time that I realized we really needed to push FFC, Inc’s message and awareness beyond the borders of the small town. To grow, we needed a greater physical reach and needed to widen our scope beyond the limits of a small town. To reach the more people and more communities we would need the use of web, news articles, and social networking. And thus, we continue today to spread our message about the wonderful programs we offer and the variety of people we care for! This is an organization that is only advancing and growing, and yet, it started solely with the good heart and selfless generosity of one woman, Florence Egan.
