The Retired and Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP), run by the Greater Erie Community Action Committee (GECAC), matches the skills of retired people with the needs of community organizations across the Erie area.
GECAC only asks that participants “possess interest and ability in the volunteer task.”
RSVP volunteers may tutor children, pack items for food assistance programs or assist health screenings for other seniors.
To be eligible to participate, volunteers must be age 55 or older and an Erie County resident. Volunteers can donate up to 40 hours of their time a week.
To get involved, contact Ron Howze at the GECAC by telephone at 459-4581 ext. 463 or via e-mail at email@example.com.
