My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Canopy, Palo Alto,, CA, USA
I volunteered with Canopy to plant over 120 trees in East Palo Alto on MLK Day. The organization employs students in the area, giving them valuable experience, an excuse to be outdoors, and fair compensation. Canopy leads projects on public lands and in private property owners' space. The organization does all the research and training and acquires the appropriate supplies to ensure that projects are environmentally sound. Thank you, Canopy, for making our community greener and more vibrant, and for helping to connect us residents with beautiful and beneficial trees!
Review for East Palo Alto Kids Foundation, Palo Alto, CA, USA
This nonprofit puts dollars directly into the hands of creative, hard-working teachers. EPAK trusts that teachers know what's best for their students, and these small grants (up to $600, twice per year) fund everything from field trips to science lab materials to engaging reading materials to create a more enriching curriculum.
