RSVP prepares for fall

At the Retired and Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP) office here in Grass Valley, we often refer to our many volunteers as the “heart of our community.” Indeed, the more than 500 volunteers who come through RSVP contribute so much to the special quality of life we all share in Nevada County.

Those looking to volunteer enroll with RSVP and learn about the many opportunities in Nevada County for getting involved whether it be with seniors, children, cultural activities or public safety. Volunteers can sign up for special events, one time activities or longer commitments to programs that meet their particular interests. There is something for everyone!

Nonprofits and community agencies value their volunteers immensely, citing improved quality of services and public support for their programs. Nevada County nonprofits should be proud of their investment in volunteers and continue to develop meaningful, project-oriented opportunities for both current and future volunteers.

These are tough times for so many – and yet we see so many volunteers really stepping up, mobilizing themselves and others.

RSVP begins its 25th year of service here in Nevada County and welcomes everyone to join us as we work to meet the challenges of today – and tomorrow. Reach RSVP at 271-0255.
