Do NOT volunteer on any event supervised by the employee Martha Inge. She treats her volunteers terribly, yells at them, has no problems throwing them away if they don’t do respond exactly the way she wants. I’ve seen her torn on volunteers who were considered her right hand and yell at others with no regards of their feelings. She is a horrible person

I volunteered with this organization on and off when my schedule permitted for a few months until I moved. Everyone is so friendly! I always felt respected and valued by this organization. Good organization working to make a difference!!

There's a lot of people like myself that have been laid off or just looking for work and are trying to find something positive to do until we seek employment.
