East Bay Community Action Program (EBCAP) Looking for Volunteers
East Bay Community Action Program (EBCAP) is looking for volunteers, ages 55 and older, to join its Retired & Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP). RSVP is part of AmeriCorps Seniors, a national network of service programs that provides older Americans the opportunity to apply their life experience to meeting community needs. RSVP volunteers serve in a diverse range of nonprofit organizations, public agencies, and faith-based groups.
EBCAP’s Office of Volunteer Services Director, Kim Wetherald, said “RSVP enriches the lives of people, age 55 and over, through meaningful volunteer opportunities that use their time and skills to address critical community needs. Volunteers choose how, where, and how often they want to serve.”
Some volunteer opportunities include: Friendly Visitors, Computer Literacy, Volunteer Income Tax Assistance Program, Senior Health Insurance Program, Career Closet, Food Pantries/Food Distribution, Just Checking In, and Health Education Workshop Co-leaders for Walk With Ease, A Matter of Balance, and Healthy Eating For Successful Living in Older Adults.
People 55+ who are interested in volunteering should contact EBCAP’s Office of Volunteer Services at (401) 435-7876, Ext. 1137.
