Lakewood, NJ (PRWEB) December 26, 2013
Kars4Kids announced today that it has been honored with a prestigious 2013 Top-Rated Award by GreatNonprofits, the leading provider of user reviews about nonprofit organizations.
The Top-Rated Nonprofit award was based on the large number of positive reviews that Kars4Kids received – reviews written by volunteers, donors and clients. People posted their personal experience with the nonprofit. For example, one person wrote, “Anyone who has seen or been involved with this charity becomes a better person for it, while the scope of the variety of things they are able to accomplish are incredible and continue to grow.”
The award was a granted to J O Y For Our Youth, the umbrella organization for which Kars4Kids acts as a DBA.
"We are truly honored by this award," says Kars4Kids spokesman Steven Weldler, "It feels really special to have the amazing work we've done this year be recognized in this way."
The award comes as the charity is gearing up for the end of year tax deduction season, extending hours and bringing on more customer service agents to deal with the rush.
While the Top-Rated Awards run through the end of October, Kars4Kids was part of the inaugural group to qualify for the year.
“Savvy donors want to see the impact of their donations more than ever,” said Perla Ni, CEO of GreatNonprofits, “People with direct experience with Kars4Kids have voted that the organization is making a real difference.”
Being on the Top-Rated list gives donors and volunteers more confidence that this is a credible organization. The reviews by volunteers, clients and other donors show the on-the-ground results of this nonprofit. This award is a form of recognition by the community.
