Do you like to crochet, knit, or sew? RSVP volunteers help to make bags, blankets, sensory blankets, pillows, and beanies to distribute to local schools, special needs schools, DCF< and other commuity partners that express a need for such items. This can be done in the comfort of your own home. RSVP staff will coordinate with you toward the end of each month to pick-up goods!

If you'd rather make and create in a group setting, we can connect you to a group - just reach out!

RSVP volunteers receive excess medical, excess auto, and volunteer liability insurance. Volunteers that drive over 71 miles in a month are also eligible to receive gas mileage reimbursement.

RSVP volunteers also improve and enhance the quality of the community organizations they serve.
