RSVP VOLUNTEERS - Monroe County PA
MONROE COUNTY RSVP Volunteerism for adults over age 55
Retired and Senior Volunteer Program of Monroe County PA has 800 volunteers serving at any of our 85 sites in the county. Come join us. We are assisting in schools, libraries, parks, personal care homes, hospitals, county offices, government and non-profit organizations and agencies. We are knitting lap blankets for veterans and crocheting baby hats at home. You'll find us in the community theaters, in open spaces and recreation areas. We are tapping and singing and dancing to entertain residents at nursing homes. We are driving people to medical appointments and helping them grocery shop. We visit the home-bound and make re-assuring phone calls. We are building ramps for the disabled and doing minor home repairs to keep the elderly and disadvantaged safe and independent in their own homes. Some of us sit down for a while, some of stand for long periods of time, some of us drive, some of us sing - but we all help others do better.
