My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Islamic Relief USA, Alexandria, VA, USA
Volunteering is an opportunity to grow as an individual and as a community.
Recently my family and I volunteered at Islamic Relief for meal packing. My son has autism with a speech delay which affects his ability to follow multiple directions & socialize.
However, the staff and other volunteers went out of their way to guide and assist him as needed. The mentorship he received was so motivational that he later told me, “mom, I’ve had a wonderful day, when can we go again?”
IR, has always extended their arms out to help others in need. However, this was very different because, they extended kindness, understanding, inclusion and space for a person to be of service with dignity and respect.
We always look forward to volunteer at this wonderful organization, where humanity is at its forefront.
