How Can You Help?

The DSAR relies on proceeds from the annual 5K race, the annual golf tournament, and donations to fund the events.  We strive to make the events accessible to everyone, so there is no charge for almost every event planned during the year.

You can help by giving of your time to volunteer.  A helping hand is always needed during the 5K and golf tournament, the picnic, the holiday party, and with many other tasks.  You can solicit items to be used for prizes at the 5K and for raffle prizes at the golf tournament.  You can make a monetary donation by clicking on the "DONATE NOW" button on this website.  The DSAR cannot serve you and your family without your help.

Call or email us to let us know of your willingness to volunteer.
