BACKGROUND CHECK: Because KRS works with children, we are required to do a background check on all volunteers. Thus, before you can volunteer at KRS, you must complete a new volunteer application and bring with you to KRS' sign-in a form of photo identification (e.g., a driver's license) for background check purposes. Please fill out a new volunteer application online here before coming to volunteer.

CANCELLATIONS: If you must cancel, please give us at least 48 hours notice so we can find a volunteer replacement if necessary.
