Review for WAGES (Women's Action to Gain Economic Security), Oakland, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

This is an organization that truly empowers community members and as such makes our community a better place enviromentally, financially as well as on the human level. My interest in volunteering at WAGES started when a close friend that cleans houses with regular non green products kept telling me of all thes symptoms that she has been having. I know she takes pride in her work but those products have taxed her health. WAGES is the alternative so that WAGES members can stay healthy, financially viable and consider the environment a top priority. Coming to the downtown office to volunteer is a fulfilling and great experience for me, people at the office are incredibly friendly and patient and they are so committed to their work.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the life changes to the coop members; they learn how to do their work in an enviromentally reponsible way as well as not putting their health at risk.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

knowing that it is empowering the participants and that we are all contributing to act more respectufully towards the environment.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

incrdibly generous with their time and paticience as well always very appeciative of the work done by volunteers. They also maximize their resources so that nothing is wasted.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

have an even greater impact so that the practices could be adopted state and nation wide. The messages and the work should definetely be spreaded.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
