Share your letter or card writing skills as a virtual pen pal through Hattie Larlham! Hattie Larlham clients would love to hear from you. You will be benefiting adults and children with intellectual and developmental disabilities and bring joy and companionship into their lives through a quick card or letter. Volunteers supply the cards or letters, and they can be as creative as you desire - make a card or simply write a letter and give someone in needed a boost, a word of encouragement, or sense of connectedness.
To volunteer as a Virtual Pen Pal, join the Retired & Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP) a volunteer program exclusive to Ohio residents in Franklin or Delaware County ages 55 years and older. We match volunteers ages 55+ with nonprofits in their community that either need or rely on volunteers to be able to provide their services. Funded through the Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS) and part of AmeriCorps Seniors, VANTAGE Aging’s Retired and Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP) is one of the largest volunteer networks in the nation for people 55 years and over. We partner with nonprofit agencies to match these older adults to their volunteer opportunities. RSVP projects link the skills of the volunteers with the identified needs of the community. We think of ourselves as the 'center hub' for our volunteers looking for opportunities. We offer many wonderful incentives and perks to our team of RSVP volunteers, this program is free and so rewarding to be a part of.
