Shelby County Retired Senior Volunteer Program
The purpose of RSVP (Retired and Senior Volunteer Program) is to provide volunteer opportunities for seniors (55+) to share their time and lifetime experience in their communities. Shelby County currently has over 1,136 seniors that volunteer their time and talents with agencies and programs throughout the county. The program has 170 volunteer opportunities (stations) to choose from.
RSVP senior volunteers provide approximately 25,500 hours of service each month and have impacted the lives of many people in Shelby County in the past year. Since January 1, 2000, Shelby County RSVP has served over 3.1 million hours volunteering, valued over $63.2 million. Recognition is provided for the senior volunteers with a spring picnic and December awards recognition brunch.
RSVP is very proud of all our senior volunteers and very grateful to the continued, wonderful support of our county commission. Shelby County RSVP is a vibrant, growing organization that is vital to the well being of the county’s senior population. Senior volunteers share their time and experience and benefit not only others in the county, but themselves most of all. A senior that is active and involved in their community, benefits both mentally and physically, and is happy making a difference.
For more information about volunteer opportunities, please contact Marvin Copes. If we don’t have an area of interest we will attempt to make a match to fill your aspirations in volunteering. All seniors need to keep active and this is one way.
