About

If you 55 years of age or older and looking for a way to stay active and healthy, are newly retired, or just have some free time on your hands - then volunteering is for you. The Retired and Senior Volunteer Program of the Community Service Society is a national program that matches people who want to help, with a volunteer assignment that best suits their skills and interests. The time commitment can be as little as 2 hours a day to several days a week -- depending on how much time you want to share.

As a volunteer you can feed the hungry at soup kitchens and food pantries or by delivering meals to homebound elderly. You can visit the sick as a Hospice volunteer or nursing home friendly visitor. RSVP volunteers also help by tutoring children who are having difficulty learning to read, and by preparing adults and recent immigrants for the high school equivalency exam or to find employment. Some volunteers help by providing administrative support at local non-profit organizations, while others assist local museums and cultural institutions as docents. There is usually something for everyone! There are dozens of opportunities right here in Staten Island. To learn more about this program and to see if volunteering is right for you, call 718-494-3222 or email tdicostanzo@cssny.org. A little of your time can make a big difference in someone else’s life.
