Review for Big Apple Greeter, New York, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have been a Big Apple Greeter for over 15 years. I always seemed to be helping people find their way around the City so when I saw an ad about Big Apple Greeter, I thought this would be a fun thing to do. As a greeter I have met so many lovely people from all over the world. I especially enjoyed showing a solo traveler how to use the subway and walk across the Brooklyn Bridge. She was afraid to leave her hotel until we met.

Review for Big Apple Greeter, New York, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have been both a greeter and office volunteer since 2002 and have enjoyed both roles. Meeting people from all over the world and showing them the things I love about the City is a wonderful and rewarding experience. Some visitors were afraid to venture out on their own but once I showed them how to use the subway and walk the streets, they loved New York City. And, being in the office with so many talented and dedicated people is a real blessing. It's a great way to stay connected and help a wonderful organization.

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

Being a volunteer since 2002.

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

None.

Role:  Volunteer & Volunteer in office, for fund-raising events and as a greeter.
