The Retired Senior and Volunteer Program (RSVP) is one of the largest volunteer networks in the nation for people 55 and over. They use the skills and talents learned over the years, and also develop new ones, while serving in a variety of volunteer activities within our communities.

 

RSVP volunteers choose how, where and how often they want to serve, with commitments ranging from a few hours to 40 hours per week. Volunteers receive pre-service orientation, training from the organization where they will serve and supplemental insurance while on duty. RSVP volunteers do not receive monetary incentives, but sponsoring organizations may reimburse them for some costs incurred during service.

 

Please contact the RSVP Coordinator for your specific county to verify current volunteer opportunities.

This afternoon at The Wilds Senior Community in Ravenna, our AmeriCorps Seniors #PortageRSVP staff hosted April's "RSVP Community Give Back Day" for a total of 3 projects in an hour! Wowza!!! 🤩Volunteer Patti was our leader, showing us how to use a loom to knit. She's a pro and after teaching herself during the pandemic, she now makes over 400 items every year to donate in the community. RSVP provided the materials and we can't wait to see what they create!! RSVP will accept any item to donate and distribute to those in need at a later date! So much fun... learning a new skill & sharing with others!! 💙They as a group decided to create a "Knitting Club" that meets monthly on the 2nd Friday at 2pm in their community room. All are welcome to join us!! The other volunteers that weren't interested in knitting were able to assist with two additional projects. The first being a 65 piece mailing that will go to area volunteers. And the second was finishing up more File of Life Packets that we started last month. All together, between both centers, nearly 500 packets have been assembled & will soon be shared in the community! ❤🩺Volunteers & friends in pictures:Patti - Kim - Rosie - MarySandy - Tammy - Janet - Rose RSVP is a program of Family & Community Services #FCSserves #AmeriCorpsSeniors #SupportLocal #GoForthDoGood #AmeriCorpsWorks United Way of Portage County Ohio ServeOhio SCOPE Portage County Senior Center Ravenna Area Chamber of Commerce *materials are on a 'first come, first serve' basis ...
