    Pros

    Helping others makes you feel good about yourself and of humanity as a whole. I always felt that my contributions to this organization truly helped. The encouragement from the other volunteers is very uplifting. The organization gives each volunteer a detailed turn-by-turn direction sheet that guides the volunteer to each destination on the route. I have never had problems finding my route drops.

    Cons

    I never experienced any negatives or setbacks from working with this organization.
