Thanks to volunteers

To the Valley News:

During National Volunteer Week, Retired and Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP) of Essex & Clinton Counties would like to thank the 700 women and men who serve our communities all year-long. As a tribute to the value of the volunteers who serve our programs, President Obama personally thanked RSVP members in a conference phone call.

RSVP volunteers helped hundreds of people file income taxes at the AARP tax sites in Essex and Clinton Counties, fed dozens of families at the Jay shelter during Hurricane Irene, manned numerous food pantries and opened a new thrift shop in Plattsburgh, to name a few of the many things they’ve recently done.

RSVP is a membership organization which invites people 55 and over to volunteer with our local nonprofit organizations, schools, and hospitals. We match the volunteer's experience, talents and interests with a placement that's right for them.

Thank you again RSVP volunteers, for getting the job done. Where there’s a need, you are there!
