Riverside County VOAD

Logo for Riverside County VOAD -- the logo is orange and white and represents the "uniqueness of diversity funneled into a cooperative goal. The logo depicts a narrowing selection and channeling process as member organizations pool their resources. To maximize these resources, the organizations become one, yet distinctive within predetermined parameters. Through a statement of purpose, these organizations are brought together under an umbrella organization known as VOAD.
