“Some of our volunteers couldn’t make it through their first month of retirement. They call and tell me that they need something to do. I tell them, ‘We have plenty to do!’ There are some senior volunteers who are not sure what their purpose is. But when you get up early in the morning to give your neighbors a meal, that work is purposeful. They’ve done well in life and want to give back to those in need. They have huge hearts," says RSVP Director Evelyn Harris.
