Everyone can be great because anyone can serve. You don't have to have a college degree to serve. You don't even have to make your subject and your verb agree to serve... You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love... Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.


Retired & Senior Volunteer Program


The Retired and Senior Volunteer Program, RSVP, improves lives and strengthens our community through the volunteer service of adults 55 and older. RSVP fosters rewarding volunteer experiences by helping people discover the place where their skills, experience and available time match with needs in our community. RSVP is an outreach program of the Sanford Center for Aging.


  • Help children achieve their potential
  • Keep seniors independent
  • Distribute food and clothing to those in need
  • Promote art and culture in Northern Nevada
  • Advocate for safety
  • Strengthen our community in other ways

RSVP would like to help you discover a way to share your time, skills, and experience as you make a difference in our community.
