Review for Serving People in Need, Inc., Costa Mesa, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I was introduced to Serving People In Need (SPIN) by a colleague about 10 years ago and have been a fan and supported ever since. They are a wonderful non-profit doing everything in their power to help the working poor in Orange County. They like to say 'SPIN gives them a hand-up, not just a hand-out'. I have been fortunate to hear several first hand success stories at SPIN's Annual Dinners; heart breaking and heart-warming at the same time.

In January, 2018 I was elected to the Board of Directors and have really enjoyed being more involved (albeit small in the scheme of things) for the non-profit. The board consists of compassionate, generous people, who like myself, really enjoy giving back and helping those less fortunate. Everyone leads busy, hectic lives, but we make time to do what we can. Since June, 2018 to date, we have served 295 adults and children - we focus on FAMILY. In 2017, we served a total of 516 adults and children...incredible!

I am humbled, honored and very rewarded to be a part of Serving People In Need.
