One of the best times I have ever had volunteering! They were extremely well-organized. No time was wasted, and they have tasks that just about anyone can do. You can write labels (good for people who need to sit), packers, runners, fillers. We watched a short video and listened to a rep who explained all of the tasks and the benefits of what we were doing that day. Heartwarming! Great opportunity for a family, work group, or even someone alone (like I did)! I highly recommend it!
