K4PSD owes its existence and success to the unwavering commitment and hard work of our numerous volunteers. In 2014 alone, we estimate that these dedicated individuals contributed over 10,000 hours of their time to our cause. This remarkable input is equivalent to the combined effort of 10 full-time or part-time employees, representing a substantial saving for the organization — over $100,000.
The value of this volunteer time cannot be overstated. It encompasses a range of activities, from administrative tasks and event planning to dog training and public outreach. Each volunteer brings unique skills and dedication, significantly enhancing the efficiency and effectiveness of our operations.
Their involvement goes beyond mere numbers; it reflects a community deeply invested in the welfare of those with disabilities and the belief in the power of service dogs to transform lives. The hours they dedicate are a testament to their generosity and commitment to a cause greater than themselves.
The impact of our volunteers is seen in every aspect of our operations. They are the backbone of K4PSD, driving our mission forward and enabling us to reach new heights in our service to the community. Their contribution is not just a measure of time, but a measure of the heart and spirit that fuels our organization.
