Throughout the pandemic, members of our office and advisory board have made periodic calls to each and every volunteer (over 350 volunteers). These wellness calls were made to not only connect with our volunteers that were sheltering in place, but to make sure that the wonderful people that supported our community and organization were being supported in return. The calls brightened our days that were normally filled with uncertainty and fear of a virus that was ravaging our older population, and we found that a lot of volunteers found comfort in the contact as well. Wellness outreach is still a very important project to RSVP. Volunteer coordinator, Doris Dreyer, is making calls to volunteers that are sheltering-in-place to check-in on them. She is making sure they have adequate food, water, shelter, safety and support – and to see how they are doing in general during the COVID-19 pandemic and to see if they would like any assistance. RSVP believes that connecting to and supporting our volunteers is essential to continuing our programs that greatly improve our community.
