Review for Pathways To Volunteering, Canoga Park, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

PTV is a great organization that serves as a gateway to volunteering. They have perfect starter volunteer opportunities for all ages. They make volunteering easy and fun. Its definitely a much needed organization especially for communities that need volunteer awareness. Through PTV, I was able to pinpoint the cause I'm particularly passionate about. Thanks PTV!

Review for Union Rescue Mission, Los Angeles, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

This is by far one of the greatest nonprofit Ive encountered and researched. Everything is transparent with this organization and they are really making a difference in battling homelessness and keeping families especially women and children off the streets. They have a lot of success stories on Youtube you can watch. All of those people are real because I have personally met a few of them. I've also met the CEO and Rev Andrew Bales and he is truly an inspiration to many and to me personally as well. He is a great guy to be around and the homeless people of LA is truly lucky to have a guy like Andrew fighting for them!

I have volunteered for their breakfast and lunch service and its a great way to get started with this organization. You have to first sign up and go through orientation which is a couple of hours and you will really get an understanding of what they do and what kind of opportunities are available for you to volunteer. They also just launched an automated system to make signing up easy and simple. Here's the link: https://www.cervistech.com/acts/console.php?console_id=0267&console_type=event

Review for Pathways To Volunteering, Canoga Park, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I've been searching for great volunteer events for awhile and finally I came across Pathways to Volunteering and boy was I lucky to have found Craig and his organization. Craig is an awesome leader/organizer. His events are simple and easy for anyone to participate unlike some of the other organizations where they require all kinds of forms/orientations before you can even start. The last event PTV held that I volunteered for was Operation Christmas Child Shoebox packing party. It was both rewarding and heartwarming to know that because of Craig and us, there will be 240 little girls 5-9 that will have a much sweeter Xmas this year because of the shoe box presents we packed and delivered. This event was well organized and a lot of people came out to help! Thank you so much Craig and I'm very looking forward to helping PTV out in future events!!! I would definitely recommend PTV to everyone especially families because these are great events to bring your kids and teach them about helping others and how to make a difference.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

NOTHING. ITS GREAT THE WAY IT IS!
