Review for Open Arms of Minnesota, Minneapolis, MN, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Open Arms staff and volunteers opened their arms to me immediately. I was welcomed that first day 3 years ago when I walked into the door. As I’ve chopped vegetables, onions were my specialty, made soup and other nutritious food for our clients, I discovered a safe environment where people respect my skills and my talents. Now I volunteer each morning packing the food – ensuring the right food gets to the right people – and having it ready when the drivers arrive to take the food to our clients. Interacting with Open Arms staff and volunteers is the highlight of my day. My life is changed forever because of Open Arms.

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

I have grown personally in a place where I matter and feel secure. My constributionas are appreciated and others consistenly thank me for being part of the Open Arms community.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

bring more volunteers into Open Arms to help our current clients and to increase the number of people we can serve.

Role:  Volunteer & I have helped prepare food and packed food for delivery. I also put smiles on the faces of other volunteers and staff.
