Common Good Retired Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP)
RSVP is a program of Catholic Charities of the Diocese of Winona. RSVP links individuals over the age of 55 with organizations or projects which can use their life-long wisdom and experiences to help meet critical community needs. RSVP will take your individual skills, interests, and availability to connect you with a mission you feel passionate about. RSVP volunteers provide services to frail seniors, individuals with disabilities, and low income individuals. Services can be related to food delivery, transportation, companionship, respite, food pantry support, access to affordable food, home repair, affordable housing, and tutoring or educational assistance in elementary schools.
RSVP has partnered with several local organizations in Mower County to provide volunteers with supportive benefits at no cost to the organization or the volunteer. These benefits include mileage reimbursement, supplemental accident and liability insurance, and ongoing support and recognition. To find out how you can make a difference in your community, contact Michael Maas, Common Good RSVP Regional Coordinator at (507) 450-1518, or email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Volunteer Opportunities with RSVP partner organizations in Mower County include the following: Hot Meals on Wheels, Semcac Meals on Wheels, The Salvation Army, Freeborn/Mower Habitat for Humanity, Mower County Seniors, Bone Builders Exercise Program, Le Roy Area Food Shelf, Banfield Elementary School, Southgate Elementary School, and Neveln Elementary School.
