Would you recommend Muscular Dystrophy Association of Southern Nevada?

by Jenna D. from Las Vegas, NV (September 26, 2015)
The people involved in this organization are some of the friendliest people you will ever meet, the whole atmosphere of the event is so relaxed once things get started. Plus the children and families you meet each have their own personal stories that really inspire and touch your heart. This is a wonderful organization to volunteer with and the experience really has an impact in more ways than you could imagine.
