Please join me and vote yes on Town Meeting Day to continue our town’s long standing support of RSVP, along with the support of other like minded towns in our area.
RSVP and Volunteer Center for Central Vermont and Northeast Kingdom is part of a nationwide program for people who want to help meet community needs through meaningful use of their skills, knowledge and talents in volunteer service.
Northfield was able to benefit from RSVP services during the 2011-2012 fiscal year. The RSVP Coordinator involved 20 residents of Northfield in volunteer service to area non-profit organizations in Northfield and Washington County. In Northfield alone volunteers have provided an equivalent of $33,405 in services.
In addition to involving these volunteers, RSVP made available insurance, transportation reimbursement, recognition and training.
Also, RSVP Coordinator JoEllen Calderara continued her work with the Irene recovery team to help families in Northfield by helping to coordinate volunteer efforts for cleanup and recovery.
The function of our volunteer center is to match volunteers of all ages with non-profit organizations needing help. Anyone wishing to know more about RSVP or wanting to become a volunteer should call JoEllen at 828-4770, visit our website at www.volunteervt.com, or stop in to meet JoEllen or our director, J. Guy Isabelle, at our donated office in Woodridge Nursing Home in Berlin.
See you at Town Meeting,
Meg Donahue Davis
