Such an enjoyable atmosphere. It's awesome how this organization helps individuals and families smile a little bigger, shine a little brighter, and assist with achieving so much. Truly was a great day spent making new friends. Definitely recommend any and everyone to help out!!

Over all the best place to volunteer at beccause not only do you learn that nobody is perfect but everybody is just as equal, you meet great people and just have a huge blast.
