PEN PAL VOLUNTEER - DURING COVID
MONROE COUNTY RSVP Volunteerism for adults over age 55
During this unprecedented COVID shutdown, many of our local residents - as well as our volunteers - are experiencing extreme bouts of loneliness and depression. Many have no one to uplift their spirits. As a Pen Pal, you will have the opportunity to pass along encouraging words through a card, a drawing, a personal note that will be distributed to our Meals on Wheels recipients and to several Personal Care Homes throughout the county. We are also accepting donations of note cards with which our volunteers can write their uplifting and motivational words.

Make a Difference in Your Community!
The Retired and Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP) provides opportunities for people 55 and over to make a difference in their community through volunteer service. RSVP volunteers contribute anywhere from a few to over forty hours a week, serving through schools, day care centers, police departments, hospitals and other nonprofit and public organizations to help meet critical community needs. RSVP offers maximum flexibility and choice to its volunteers. RSVP matches the personal interests and skills of older Americans with opportunities to help solve community problems and offers supplemental insurance while on duty, and on-the-job training from the agency or organization where volunteers are placed.
