My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Assistance League of the Bay Area, Houston, TX, USA
I joined the chapter in search of something meaningful to do upon retirement. I began working in the resale shop, one of the chapter's fundraisers. The interaction with the customers allowed me to connect with those who actively seek to help others in the community, both by donating and purchasing items. I also worked shifts with Operations School Bell, including checking in students who arrived to select school clothing. The parents and students were appreciative of the opportunity to select clothing which would allow the students to feel self confident, thereby making their school days less stressful. As my family was economically disadvantaged when I was growing up, I fully understand the importance of such self confidence to students.
