Fort Collins — Last year, more than 5,000 volunteers from Senior Corps.’ Retired Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP) racked up 100,000+ hours of community service in Larimer County, Colorado. RSVP volunteers are ages 55 and older and volunteer for local, part-time opportunities at nonprofit partner agencies doing activities such as mentoring children, grocery shopping for the elderly, minor home repairs, and more. Volunteers of America Colorado is proud to host an appreciation picnic, sponsored by AARP and Safeway, for our generous RSVP volunteers to celebrate their widespread impact in the community.

WHAT:       The RSVP Impact and Appreciation Picnic will include a competitive yard games tournament, stories of impact shared from volunteers and partner organizations, and live entertainment from the Ken Levinson Band. Games will be followed by a barbeque provided by King Soopers, Sprouts, and Kevin Vorhees with Keller Williams Realty.

WHO:          Volunteers of America Colorado, Senior Corps’ Retired Senior Volunteer Program volunteers, AARP, Safeway

Most importantly, Volunteers of America wants to recognize and thank the RSVP volunteers who make the program a success. To RSVP to the picnic, sign up here.
