Volunteer Opportunity of the month

Make a difference in the life of a homebound senior!

Do you enjoy

  • Meeting new people?
  • Helping others?
  • Driving (locally)?
  • Establishing and maintaining that "friendly touch"?

If you answered "yes" to these questions, then we just might have the ideal volunteer opportunity for you!

Many older adults in Delaware County want to maintain their independence by continuing to live "at home" but may be less physically able than in the past. They may be unable to get out to do list shopping, get to doctor's appointments, prepare meals, or visit friends and maintain their social interactions. These seniors rely on volunteers (like you?) to help them by driving them to doctors' appointments, driving them and accompanying them to do list-shopping -- or doing the shopping for them, just spending a little time with them on a friendly visit, or delivering meals to them through the Meals on Wheels program, which provides them with nutritious meals, friendly visits and companionship, and a watchful eye on their health and welfare.

RSVP needs volunteers to help older adults

  • stay healthy, by driving them to doctors' appointments
  • keep food and medical supplies in stock, by doing their list shopping, either with them or for them
  • keep healthy social relationships, by dropping by for a friendly visit 
  • eat healthy meals, by delivering pre-packaged meals to them through Meals on Wheels

So, if you want to make a difference in seniors' lives; if you want to help them maintain their independent living at home; and if you want to make new friends, then volunteering to drive older adults and visit with them could be exactly what you're looking for.

Welcome to RSVP of Delaware County.
RSVP is the agency of choice for volunteerism in our community.

Share the experience of your life, and give someone the experience/opportunity of a lifetime. At RSVP of Delaware County we connect people to purpose. Our programs provide social engagement, interaction, entertainment, education, information, and resources to individuals and nonprofit organizations in our community.

The Retired and Senior Volunteer Program of Delaware County offers adults age 55-plus the opportunity to share their time and talents on a regular basis in a variety of settings throughout their communities. RSVP provides volunteer opportunities based on community need and encourages volunteerism in areas where there will be an impact on the community.

RSVP volunteers are active in schools, art organizations, social service agencies, libraries, inter-generational projects, home-based activities and more!

"Our five volunteers this year have created an atmosphere with each student they see that encourages a confidence in themselves as a person and as a reader." Judy Di Maio, Reading Specialist at Indian Lane Elementary.
