    Re: it

    How long she has done it for- it = the voluntary work and the object
    How long she has done for it- This doesn't work; it needs the object, so you'd have to say 'done it for it', which sounds a bit silly.

    More likely:
    She has mentioned what voluntary work she has done for the organisation and how long she has done it.
