Non-Profit Spotlight: WRVS, UK

NON-PROFIT SPOTLIGHT - Founded in 1938 as the Women’s Voluntary Services for Air Raid Precautions to support UK civilians during WWII, today WRVS acts as a volunteer supported non-profit organization that provides practical services for seniors and others in the community that need assistance. Included among the many services and programs provided by WRVS are the over 45 Community Transport services across the UK services that help approximately 7,000 clients Get Out and About. An example of which (shown in the following video), are the WRVS Good Neighbour volunteers that provide companionship and assistance with a range of tasks including providing driving and assisting clients to medical appointments.
