Service Club Volunteer OpportunitiesWDSRA benefits from the generous support of many local service clubs and organizations. Frequently they request volunteers from WDSRA to support their events. The more volunteers we send, the more they donate to WDSRA. These events are fun and usually one time commitments. Please let us know if you do volunteer so WDSRA can be credited.
