I had the best volunteering experience of my life with the EAC. Mainly because I developed such critical resume writing skills while working with the welfare to work program. Staff were friendly and helpful, willing to work with me throughout the learning process I was committed to.// Samantha Sleeman, the volunteer coordinator who I worked with, was very patient with me. Although I wasn’t skilled enough to volunteer in my initial interest activity, she worked with me to find something more suitable and just as interesting! A volunteer match maker!!

I will never donate any time, or items there again. I am very disappointed with the way I was treated and everything else. I felt a little disrespected as far as the looks I received and everything else. I would not recommend this organization because they make you feel little and not thankful at all. I will donate my time and effort to some place that I feel it is appreciated instead of the way we were treated coming in. In my opinion, they can treat people better when they walk in the door instead of looking at them like they don't belong. I WILL NEVER donate or volunteer here again. The receptionist had no idea what I was bringing in along with the security guard and acted as though I were an idiot for bringing it there. I would actually give them less than a star! VERY DISAPPOINTED WITH THIS ORGANIZATION.
