Would you recommend Special Olympics New Jersey?

by Richard F. from MAPLE SHADE, NJ (December 16, 2018)
I've heard great things about this organization but haven't had the opportunity to volunteer with them yet. I would recommend this because it's such a great cause to support and encourage.

The people where really nice, the parents, the staff, the kids. I had a great time that day and laugh a lot. I had problems giving the medals away at the beginning, would have like for someone to explain to me who received what, because I made the mistake of giving a 4th place ribbon with a 2nd place medal, and felt sorry when taking away the medal form the kid. Please explain this to other volunteers. Great time, would love to repeat it again
