Meet the lady who schooled Shaquille O'Neal.
Our volunteers are the backbone of RSVP—and they are some truly amazing people. We would like you to meet some of them, and see how they make a difference in their communities every day.
Fred Leidel, fondly known as "Grandpa Fred," has spent nearly every Tuesday and Thursday morning over the last six years reading to the kindergarten classroom at his neighborhood school.
There are volunteers who make it all look so easy - one of those is Lori Wirth, who recently retired from the Madison Fire Department and who as a representative of the Fire Department served as a steadfast member of several RSVP committees on senior safety.
Bob Rahn spent his career in public service, first as an Army combat helicopter pilot in Viet Nam and later as a patrol officer and detective for the Madison Police Department (MPD). So, it's no surprise that when he retired, his commitment to service didn't stop.
