January 2012

Volunteer Opportunities:

I’m writing this article the week before Thanksgiving…  As I ponder my blessings and the many things for which I am thankful; I am thankful for RSVP Volunteers.  I am grateful for your gifts of service, your knowledge and talents that you freely offer in order to meet the needs within our community.  You touch the lives of many people and enable non-profits to fulfill their missions.  Lubbock would not be the same without you; your acts of kindness are immeasurable.

November 4, 2011, Lubbock RSVP hosted its annual Recognition Dinner to thank you for your service and honor those who have achieved 4000+ hours of service with the President’s Lifetime Service Award.  This award was presented to fourteen RSVP Volunteers this year.  If you know them, thank them for their service and congratulate them on their award.  Here are this year’s recipients:

HOW do I join RSVP?

Becoming a member of RSVP is simple as long as you are at least 55 and have some time to volunteer. Just call the office at 743-77873 and chat with Karon McDowell about your interests. If you are not certain what you would like to do, we can mention several current volunteer opportunities and send you a list of the sort of jobs which RSVP members are presently doing to whet your appetite. If you have a special skill or talent that you would like to utilize, we will search to find just the right job for you.
