We are very grateful to members of Broad Ave United Methodist Church who donated shelving units to us. We are now better organized and have more room. What a wonderful gesture! Volunteers who assembled the shelves include Jim Rozier, Larry Bowers and Gary Peterman.

RSVP donates to help veterans.

The Retired and Senior Volunteer Program of Blair and Huntingdon Counties has donated items to help support programs at the James E. Van Zandt VA Medical Center that address the health and welfare of local veterans.

The medical center identified items it needed and RSVP volunteers provided, among other things:
• Arts and crafts for recreational programs used by veteran patients for therapy, hobby and leisure
• Gift cards and household startup items for a program for homeless veterans establishing permanent housing
• Baby clothes and care items for new veteran mothers
• Personal care and comfort items distributed to hospitalized patients and homeless veterans

RSVP volunteers brought the items, valued at $1,737, to the RSVP Volunteer Recognition banquets in both counties in April. This is the second year the volunteers have done this. Judy Baird, Judy Hoover and Irene Homer, representing RSVP Volunteers in Blair & Huntingdon counties, present donations for veterans to Ronda Wagner, Volunteer Services Assistant at the VA Medical Center (see photo).

RSVP thanks the volunteers for their generosity and our veterans for their service.

For information about RSVP, contact Dorcey Cuzzolina, RSVP coordinator at 1-800-323-9997. RSVP is sponsored by Center for Community Action and funded by the Corporation for National and Community Service.

For information on donating to the VA medical center, contact the volunteer coordinator’s office at 814-940-7833.
