MARRS is completely dependent on the time and talents of our volunteers. Want proof? During our fiscal year 2017, July, 2016 – June, 2017, volunteer readers, operational personnel, and Board members had logged more than 3,000 volunteer hours this calendar year.

The value of these hours equate to over $74000 based in the Independent Sector value for one hour of volunteer time, $24.14.

THANK YOU, volunteers!
