Review for Communities in Schools of Central Ohio, Columbus, OH, USA

Rating: 4 stars  

I was looking for a way to help families in need, and particularly those with children. I also wanted to do it locally (Columbus, OH area). I found Communities In Schools through the local newspaper.

I have been a donor for three years now, and it has been rewarding. I don't meet the families that are helped, and they don't know who I am, but I do usually receive a 'thank you' letter in which I can tell if I made a difference to the family or not -- and that can make the experience entirely worth while!

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

feedback from the families that are helped.

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

continue to look for ways to expose the charity to the public -- the 5k run, notes in the paper during the holidays, at churches, etc.
