Many of our volunteer opportunities through the RSVP program have been temporarily suspended due to COVID-19. However, there are approximately 20 volunteers that are continuing to work with more planning to return soon. Several volunteers are helping in other ways, including distributing meals to seniors, which is so important during this time. Read more about how our dedicated volunteers have stepped up to the plate.

The annual RSVP report was recently submitted.  Highlights noted were that 132 volunteers worked nearly 22,000 hours at 17 work stations located in Hardin and Nelson county.    One dedicated volunteer worked 1,117 hours themselves!
