RSVP provides enrichment for older adults through significant community service work. It encourages seniors to bring a lifetime of talent, experience, skills and hobbies to the community projects and organizations needing volunteer talent. RSVP is part of the Social Services Division of the Department of Community and Human Development. The El Paso program began in December 1974 and will celebrate its 40th year in September 2014. It has become one of the largest of the RSVP programs in the nation with over 1300 volunteer serving in one county; the county of El Paso. There are more than 75 volunteer work stations. Volunteers serve approximately 250,000 hours a year combined. RSVP volunteers serve, without pay, at museums, hospitals, nursing homes, libraries, senior centers, schools, police and sheriff’s departments, agencies serving disabled individuals, and many other non-profit organizations. They work as mentors, tutors, and volunteer coordinators. Volunteers can serve at public and private non-profit organizations or health agencies. Any person, 55 years of age or older who wants to share the benefits of a lifetime of talent is eligible. There are no restrictions based on education, income, or experience. Anyone who wants to feel engaged, active, and appreciated will profit from becoming a part of the RSVP network.

Mission: The mission of the Retired and Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP), is to enrich the lives of older adults, strengthen the community, and encourage civic engagement through service and volunteering.

Since September 11, 2001, millions of Americans have come together with a common purpose to honor 9/11 and commemorate the tragedy through volunteer service. Together, they represent a shared belief that by neighbor helping neighbor, we can make our country stronger and better for decades to come.
We’re spending #911Day of Service alongside Letters Against Isolation, while social distancing to pay tribute through volunteerism by writing letters to seniors in assisted living facilities and sending lots of love. #PatriotDay #RSVP #NationalServiceWorks #SeniorCorps #volunteer

Ronald McDonald House Charities of El Paso

With people out of work, small businesses closed, schools shut down, and seniors more isolated than ever, the concept of helping our fellow man has been brought to the forefront of the social conversation.
.
As our fellow Americans continue to work, learn, play, and connect from home, we are asking them to please “Give From Home” too.
.
Sadly, at the same time, local nonprofits like Ronald McDonald House Charities of El Paso have experienced a sudden and deep drop in funding as fundraising events have been canceled and the attention of loyal donors — and even health care providers — has been pulled away to deal with other urgent concerns.
.
Regardless of COVID-19, the needs of the many families who rely on Ronald McDonald House Charities of El Paso have not disappeared.
.
If we are to continue providing a home-away-from-home which helps 'keep families close' who care for children who are seriously ill, then your support is VITAL.
.
On April 21, 2020, we hope we can count on you to make a difference. Please Save The Date and make plans to give to support families that are in crisis.
