Placing Volunteers Where They’re Needed Most!
The Volunteer Center for Cowlitz-Wahkiakum (VCCW) connects volunteers to dozens of agencies, schools and organizations. Volunteers provide over 90,000 hours of service annually. Over 400 local residents are currently actively volunteering and reporting their volunteer hours to CAP.
Retired and Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP)
The Retired and Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP) helps individuals, age 55+, put their skills and life experiences to use for their communities. RSVP helps older Americans stay active and involved. The number of hours a volunteer serves is flexible and depends on his or her personal schedule.
RSVP volunteers bring a variety of talents to help solve local problems affecting their own neighborhoods. RSVP volunteers deliver Meals on Wheels; provide transportation to medical appointments, work in food banks and community gardens. They tutor and mentor students in area schools as well as in adult literacy programs. Volunteers assist in local blood drives, exhibit halls and depots. They serve as tax aides and healthcare advisors. Volunteer help is used to build homes for low income families and to help military veterans find the services they have earned.
