Unlike many of the large nonprofits that are a chapter of a large organization, the Volunteer Center is a small independent nonprofit with no "parent" organization to cover expenses if needed.
We only have one small revenue source and receive a small County of Kern grant.
Our success depends on the support we receive through community donations and fundraisers.
Our efforts support animals, disabled, veterans and senior citizens!
Seniors can apply for a fan by calling 395-9787 on
Fans available for distribution depend solely on the numbers of fans collected. Completion of an application does NOT guarantee a fan.
Fan Distribution Day will be Friday, June 17th from 8:30 a.m. - 2:00 p.m. at our office - 1311 Eye Street
PRIORITY GIVEN TO SENIORS 60 AND ABOVE!!!
