Impressive Numbers…

We’ve had 1,834 volunteers, including 1,101 youth working 101 project days this year, a dramatic increase over previous years. Compared to 2008, that amounts to a 330% increase in volunteers, a 1643 % increase in youth participation and a 481% increase in days in the field. Those hours do not include the volunteer hours put in on RFOV’s eight working committees and Board of Directors!”David Hamilton, Executive Director
