Our primary mission at RSVP is to improve lives and strengthen our community through volunteer service by matching the skills, experience and interests of caring adults age 55 and older with community need. The following are updated and new volunteer opportunities we're highlighting from our community partners. We've aimed to keep the descriptions brief while also including the mission of the organization, the volunteer's role, the training provided, the leader or contact person and website or other means of getting more information. RSVP volunteers may contact RSVP or the program leaders directly. Please indicate to program leaders that you are an RSVP volunteer and make sure your hours are recorded and reported to us. Thank you for your volunteer service and the impact you have on our community!

On Tuesday, July 1, 2014, RSVP volunteers came together to celebrate our active military men and women that are currently serving overseas. Some of the letters focused on the gratitude while others were meant to encourage the soldiers to stay strong. Each letter was unique and hand-written to create a personal connection with the soldiers receiving the letters.
The letters were sent to Operation Gratitude, a non-profit organization which, since its founding in 2003, has delivered over 1 million packages to service members worldwide. Ultimately, the letters are sent with a care package to remind the individual how appreciative Americans are for their service. After two hours of writing, the RSVP volunteers were able to contribute 68 letters for service men and women. For more photos of the event, please CLICK HERE.
