“The documentary is excellent and has become an asset to our organization in the following ways: to show effects of the storm, the situation that was left to be dealt with, our team’s hard work, dedication, and accomplishments, and the ability to show the need for funding, and to help potential funders better understand our goal and mission. We show our documentary during orientation for NCCC teams (whose volunteer work offsets labor costs for client repairs/rebuilds), our annual United Way fund allocation campaign, the annual United Way New Home Raffle, and multiple presentations during our capital campaign, which we believe has influenced the receipt of over $200,000.00 in cash or in-kind donations to R3SM. ” — Dena Parker, R3SM
