Spotlight on Volunteering

Volunteering is a noble act that brings joy to the hearts of many. At AOASCC, we believe in the true essence of volunteering. Our Volunteer Department offers an opportunity for you to uplift local seniors and non-profit organizations. We are grateful to those who selflessly dedicate their time to make a difference in the community.

The AOASCC AmeriCorps Senior Program, RSVP, recognizes and celebrates inspiring volunteers. Our program is powered by a highly motivated group of volunteers who offer unparalleled companion support, telephone reassurance, financial literacy, medical chaperone support and engage with local students through pen pal programs. Local non-profits and municipalities also benefit from our support, which enhances their ability to reach their mission.

In 2024, we anticipate growth and collaboration with more community partners. We hope you will join us in this endeavor. To become a volunteer, all you need is the desire to share your energy and time for a minimum of 1 hour a week. It does not require any specific skills or a lot of time. Surprisingly, that little amount of time can change the world for another.

You can also support our program by offering educational presentations, fun craft projects, and volunteer opportunities at your non-profit. We recently had an Appreciation luncheon with volunteers where we shared stories, laughed, and enjoyed delicious food. We had so much fun that we forgot to take pictures, but here are just a few that Shelley shared.
