Important Note About Services: VoK's ability to provide services is dependent upon the availability of our volunteers. Naturally, the more notice we get from you, the more likely we will be able to find a volunteer willing & able to complete your request. We send out a weekly listing of service requests, so a week or more notice for a service request is ideal. In emergency situations, we will forward individual requests to our volunteers. We will always do our best to match a volunteer with your service request!
