Are you 55 years or older and live in Hamilton County, Ohio? Vantage Aging’s RSVP program is looking for a minimum of five volunteers to make or write cards for seniors receiving Meals on Wheels deliveries. The cards are meant to give inspiration, motivation, and joy and be an act of kindness to the seniors. This is a one-time opportunity, but it could turn into an ongoing activity if you’re interested. We are asking that each volunteer produces 10 cards. For more information, please contact Gretchen Eagle at Geagle@vantageaging.org

RSVP is one of the largest volunteer networks in the nation for people 55 and over. You can use the skills and talents you’ve learned over the years, or develop new ones while serving in a variety of volunteer activities in your community. RSVP is part of the National and Community Service’s Senior Corps Program.
