Our Volunteers

VSRA volunteers help deliver all its programs and events throughout the year. The organization would not function without them. As a small token of our appreciation a volunteer is recognized each month and is presented with a certificate and a cake. Thanks to all our volunteers, we could not do it without all your help.
