Review for Bear Necessities Pediatric Cancer Foundation, Chicago, IL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Bear Necessities is a fantastic organization! I've had the opportunity to volunteer for events, work with the children and families, fundraise, and plan social functions to raise awareness/funds. This experience has been much more than I initially set out for. I have gotten so much experience from the opportunities at BN, but I've also made some wonderful friends along the way.
