The Jewish Federation of the Berkshires Connecting with Community presents "Work Wonders with Your Experience" with Cheryl Whalen and Marissa Bogins of the RSVP Volunteer Program.
RSVP is a volunteer program which places volunteers, 55 and older, at various positions around the county. RSVP is a national organization under the Corporation for National Community Services (CNCS). Individuals with RSVP have the opportunity to use their life experiences to give back to the community.
Volunteers can also try new and exciting opportunities. Placements are made in schools, Habitat for Humanity, American Cancer Society Goodwill, Berkshire Humane Society, Arrowhead, local theatres and museums, Berkshire Medical Center and many more. Come and see if RSVP can connect you with a volunteer opportunity.
This free program is part of the Federation’s Connecting With Community Series and will be followed by a kosher hot lunch. Lunch is a $2 suggested donation for adults over 60 years of age or $7 for all others. Advance reservations are required for lunch and can be made by calling (413) 442-2200 before 9 a.m. on the day of the program.
