Wildfires are devastating communities across California, causing more than 300,000 people to evacuate their homes and threatening many more. The Camp Fire in Northern California -- one of three blazing across the state -- is the most destructive in state history. We want to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you find access to shelter. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know the most effective ways to contribute.

RSVP provides a myriad of programs and services, both directly and indirectly, through non profit and public agencies. In each area, RSVP supplies the human resources necessary to accomplish the given tasks requested by the agency. These volunteer services are performed by individuals wishing to remain active, vital and connected to the community in which they reside, developing a greater investment for future public development. In addition, RSVP provides and/or assists in the implementation of special programs to enhance and/or supplement services to the community. RSVP Volunteers are age 55 and older, who wish to continue to contribute their lifetime of experience and education by channeling those talents into meaningful volunteer work supporting the community at large. The recipients of these services range from "cradle to grave"; crossing over all social and economic lines, and addresses multiple individual needs.
