Where Volunteers Make a Difference

Save the Date: #Giving Tuesday Nov 30

Giving is at the heart of what we do at RSVP. Last year our volunteers gave 120,000+ hours in service to our communities. That’s why we’re excited about participating in #Giving Tuesday for the fifth year. #GivingTuesday is a global day of giving that harnesses the collective power of individuals, communities, and organizations to encourage philanthropy and to celebrate generosity worldwide. It inspires people to help improve our world by collaborating and giving back through the charities and causes they believe in. Please take this opportunity to support RSVP so our volunteers can support our communities.

COVID may have changed some priorities but it hasn’t slowed us down. Despite the pandemic, over 900 RSVP volunteers and 16 Foster Grandparents are currently serving Dane County residents in need. Volunteers are providing rides for veterans and seniors to medical appointments, delivering meals and groceries to homebound seniors, helping children with reading using remote learning platforms, and making warm caps, mittens, and blankets for people in need.

“As we age, opportunities diminish. Volunteering provides a purpose and commitment, therefore extending our values and purpose in life. It gives me direction and desire and fills in those gaps of loneliness.” -- RSVP volunteer.
