Review for Open Arms of Minnesota, Minneapolis, MN, USA
Open Arms MN is an exciting, fun, effective, and thoughtful organization that provides critical services to people who are very much in need. In 2009 alone, OA prepared and delivered over 300,000 meals! It is highly organized, accessible to volunteers, friendly, and fun. I'm hooked. It's an important part of each week for me. Also, I observe that the management team and other staff are highly cost conscious and efficient, ensuring that donations (time and money) are spent with care.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
working in the kitchen: I prepare and package meals, and from time to time people come in and since I'm working near the front door, they engage me in a conversation in which they passionately offer their thanks for the help they or their family has received. I volunteer at OA knowing that it's effective and far-reaching.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
spend more time there :)
