Carroll County Retired and Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP)
Established in 1971, Carroll County Retired & Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP) is the largest volunteer network of people in Carroll County age 55 and over. Volunteers who serve in our RSVP program bring a lifetime of talent, experience, skills, and hobbies to community projects, organizations, and agencies needing talented volunteers. All volunteers choose how, where, and when they want to serve, with commitments ranging from a few hours to 20-30 hours per week. RSVP was created to continue the work of the Older Americans Act, a federal law that promotes the well-being of American 60 years old and above through services and programs designed to meet the specific needs of older citizens. This program is available to all, without regard to race, color, national origin, gender, religion, sexual orientation, disability, gender identity or expression, political affiliation, marital or paternal status, genetic information, and military service.
RSVP’s Signature Programs in Carroll County include the Non-Emergency Medical Transportation Driver Program, Meals on Wheels Driver Program, and Bone Builders. Additional volunteer service areas include: food pantries, hospitals and nursing homes, congregate meal sites, End 68 Hours of Hunger, libraries, tutoring and mentoring disadvantaged and disabled youth, and making quilts for patients at nursing homes and newborns. These are merely a few examples of the valuable community services that are provided by over 400 RSVP volunteers throughout Carroll County.
In order to continue its efforts, RSVP is always searching for the time, services, and talents of local volunteers. If you live in Carroll County or surrounding area, give RSVP a call and see how you can make a difference...one person at a time.
