Review for United Community Ministries, Inc., Alexandria, VA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

My wife and I have been involved with UCM for over fifteen years. She has been a volunteer helping clients with basic needs for all that time and was a board member in the late 1990s. I have helped with food and clothing drives for as many years and was honored to join the board this past year. This is a marvelous full service organization, helping with everything from basic needs to child care to training to get people back into the work force with meaningful jobs. But the task continues to grow, with one in five children now living in poverty. At a time when former donors are now clients, we need all the help we can to care for our fellow friends and neighbors.

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

helping in the food pantry and observing the child care center

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

Help expand the footprint of donors because the task is so urgent.

Role:  Board Member & food drives and board work.
