What is the “Art of Volunteering in Retirement?
“The art of successful volunteering in retirement is finding an experience that is fun, social, convenient and meaningful,” says Brandi Morris, RSVP’s program manager. “RSVP specializes in personally helping folks find their niche so they can fully utilize their interests and talents in retirement.”
“RSVP takes an innovative and creative approach to personally matching its volunteers with their ideal opportunities,” Brandi says.
RSVP, the region’s largest volunteer network for those 55-years-old or better, provides free personalized support to seniors and retirees who are seeking convenient, social, fun and meaningful service opportunities in and around Fairfax County, Arlington County and the City of Alexandria.
The new Bailey’s Crossroads Community Shelter, operated by RSVP partner New Hope Housing, is located at 5914 Seminary Road in Falls Church, VA 22041. Free parking is available.
RSVP offers more than 300 meaningful opportunities that include helping seniors age in place, assisting local food pantries, and teaching financial literacy. RSVP also recruits volunteers for various community events including the annual Northern Virginia Senior Olympics.
Several of RSVP’s nonprofit partners offer opportunities in the Bailey’s Crossroads Area including New Hope, the Literacy Council of Northern Virginia and Capital Caring. Representatives from New Hope will be on hand to talk about the new shelter and what volunteer opportunities are available.
