Leading with a Lifetime of Experience

Each RSVP volunteer brings at least 55 years of talent and experience to the table! RSVP volunteers have hundreds of service opportunities from which to choose, some utilizing current skills and others providing an opportunity to learn new things.

  • Supporting local food pantries
  • Providing transportation for seniors
  • Mentoring children and adults in financial literacy
  • Delivering meals to shelters and seniors

Enrich Your Life and the Lives of Others

Studies show that volunteering helps us enjoy healthier, longer, and more fulfilling lives. Most RSVP’ers tell us that they get more out of volunteering than the folks they are helping. Volunteering with RSVP keeps people connected to their community and provides outstanding social opportunities to meet other like-minded volunteers all year long.

Other benefits of joining RSVP include:

  • Personalized volunteer placement
  • Free accident and liability insurance while serving
  • Optional mileage and meal reimbursement
  • Invitations to free social and recognition events
  • Fun and educational training opportunities
