Members of the Retired Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP) were recently recognized for their service to the Children's Center at Chautauqua County Family Court in Mayville. The Center is funded by a grant from the Unified Court System (UCS) and operated by the family services division of Chautauqua Opportunities, Inc.
"We would like to publicly thank our awesome volunteers here at the Children's Center," Site Supervisor Debby Ruland said. "They work with the children in such a heartwarming way; it's just a joy to watch them develop special relationships. They are simply the best!"
RSVP is a part of Senior Corp. and is administered by the Corporation for National and Community Service. Volunteers receive pre-service orientation and training from the organizations served and supplemental insurance while volunteering. As funds are available, travel reimbursement assistance may be available. Anyone 55 years of age and older can volunteer.
