VRS is the sum of its volunteers. They spearhead fundraising, paint classrooms, mend clothes and send donations. Once home, they begin the real work of raising awareness for an organization that depends on its donors. The work of VRS is ongoing and the needs are many. Volunteers are vital to keep VRS at the forefront of helping children and elderly people who have been abused.
