Why I volunteer with the IRC

I had always promised myself that I would give back to my community once I retired. As soon as I learned about the important work being done at the IRC I knew that I wanted to give you my time. I felt even more motivated when I realized that almost 92% of every dollar raised goes directly to program services for our clients. I am inspired every day by the courage of our clients and the dedication of our staff.
