What we're about

Since August 8, 2010 Richmond Volunteers has been helping the Richmond community. We are an eclectic group of people who are willing to get our hands dirty to make a difference in our community. If you are a compassionate person with a desire to help, please join us. Being hands on means we don't create our own fundraising events, but we often participate in organized events in our community. If you are willing to step up and lead an event or suggest groups that need our help, please contact one of the organizers or post on the message board. We hope to see you at an event soon.
