Would you recommend Arthritis Foundation, Pacific Region?

I would recommend this place if you are willing to help out on easy tasks. My group & I went a couple of days ago and it was a good experience. The people there were extremely nice and treated us with respect. The volunteer work that we were given was to stick this sticker thing with people's name on it onto an envelope. Easy right? It was an easy and fun task and we did it for about an hour and a half. The place is nice and clean and it looks really decent in my opinion. If you are looking for some easy place to help, I would recommend this place. P.S. We're also planning to come back this week again to help out because we enjoyed it so much (:
