    Pros

    Doing good for the community. Being apart of doing things for the greater good and helping Veterans and families that are in need.

    Cons

    The people in charge should be looked at more carefully. They're egos have become inflated and they think they are the holier then though and make decisions on their own without bringing it to the E Board. They treat they're employees without regard, unfairly set unrealistic "employment" expectations eithout compensation, which we have been classified as Volunteers gor tax purposes and as a way to get out of having to pay into workers comp. Paid leave, insurances etc. Something needs to be done to stop Non Profits from getting away with this unjust mistreatment
