My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for WHEATON VOLUNTEER RESCUE SQUAD INC, Wheaton, MD, USA
It's difficult to express and encapsulate how this organization has positively impacted me through the work we did as volunteers for the Wheaton area community. It's very personal in that it gave me a place to be, a place to learn, be challenged, and serve.
As I think about it this place and what's it has done personally for me, I can't help but reflect on the fact all the volunteers the have come and gone through those doors, left as better people because of WVRS and the work they did there. It's impossible not to be profoundly impacted by working alongside so many diverse volunteers that have supported WVRS in innumerable ways over the decades. The diversity of this organization's membership is something that should be acknowledged and celebrated, as it wasn't this way, but it is a testament to an organization that undoubtedly can change with the times and have always had an open the door to all in the spirit volunteerism and giving back to your community.
I am proud of having been able to call this place a second home for the 6 or 7 years that I volunteered there, and I hope I was able to give back what this organization gave me. The lessons and experiences I learned have forever impacted my work with nonprofits and WVRS will ways have a warm spot in my heart.
I couldn't have asked for a better experience or a more worthwhile organization.
