Blankets & Caps for Newborns
Handcrafted blankets & caps

You can help welcome and comfort newborns in the newborn nurseries of local hospitals by knitting or crocheting caps and blankets to help celebrate these new little ones. This is such a wonderful way to be of service to babies here in our community and do it from your own home in your free time.

There are no specific patterns or color requirements so you can make the most of your creativity. You will deliver your completed projects to the RSVP office - either as an ongoing assignment or a one-time donation. Just complete the RSVP enrollment form to be registered as a volunteer for the project. You will then track the hours you donate to the project each month and have the Volunteer Coordinator at RSVP sign your timesheet when you deliver your blankets and caps.

This volunteer opportunity is offered through Davis Co. Retired & Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP) and is for people age 55 or better. Benefits of volunteering through RSVP include mileage reimbursement for travel between your home and the RSVP office when delivering your blankets & caps. We also provide our volunteers with supplemental insurance coverage while serving and ongoing recognition events throughout the year.

Please come join us in RSVP and help make a difference in the lives of people here in Davis County! Call Pat Brown, RSVP Program Coordinator today for the information and forms you need to enroll. 801-525-5052.

About Davis County RSVP

Location:

42 South State Street, Clearfield, UT 84015, US

Mission Statement

Davis County RSVP empowers and enables Americans 55+ in addressing community needs and concerns through volunteering.

Description

Americans 55+ have a lifetime of experience to share and the desire to make a real difference in their world. Members of this mature generation have managed households, been business owners and nurses, farmers and salespeople, artists and executives. Now they are ready to put their unique talents and expertise to work in their communities, and enrich their own lives in the process.

RSVP is the connection to aid volunteers in choosing how and where to serve, time of service, causes to support, and how to get started. RSVP provides pre-service orientation, training from the organization where service is given, supplemental insurance while on duty, and, in some cases, a mileage reimbursement to cover the cost of travel between home and the volunteer site.

When you volunteer, you're not just helping others - you're helping yourself. Volunteering leads to new discoveries and new friends. Plus, studies show that volunteering helps you live longer and promotes a positive outlook on life.
