RMR Volleyball Shinkara Hardship Fund

The Shinkara Fund was established to assist junior athletes who might need a little help with the expenses related to Club Volleyball. 

The RMR thanks “legendary local volley-philanthropist” Tom Shinkara for all of his support over the years. So many adults and juniors have come to love the sport, and have enjoyed expanded opportunities to play, thanks to Tom and his good works! 

The Shinkara Hardship Fund Application can be found here.
