Description

RSVP, a Senior Corps initiative, taps the skills, talents, and experience of more than half a million Americans age 55 and older to meet community needs in education, the environment, public safety, homeland security, and other areas. The Friends RSVP, serving in Rockingham and Strafford Counties, mobilizes citizens age 55 and older to meet community needs by sharing their time and talent through meaningful volunteer activities at more than 85 non-profit and municipal organizations. More than 600 RSVP volunteers serve in local senior nutrition programs; provide isolation reducing companionship at local nursing homes and hospitals; serve as tutors and mentors for youth; help older adults live more independently by providing transportation to medical appointments and the grocery store and help community organizations operate more efficiently.
