The Volunteer Connection

This continues RSVP’s regular Sunday column of outstanding volunteer opportunities. There are new and exciting listings so read on.

• The Children’s Museum needs docents from now to Aug. 19 to oversee the Lego exhibit.

• Western Nevada College needs ushers for Western Nevada Musical Theatre Company’s November production. Will receive free refreshments, a show souvenir, and allowed to watch performances free of charge.

• RSVP needs Telephone Tree volunteers to call senior(s) at least once a week to see how they are doing and to bring companionship over the phone.

• RSVP needs Home Companion volunteers to help provide seniors with basic needs and services such as visiting, reading, helping organize files, shopping for groceries, and more. A couple hours a week means so much to seniors.

• Ormsby Association for Retarded Citizens needs volunteers for its Thrift Store to sort, hang and organize clothing. This is their big source of funds. Please help!

• Like to see great shows for free? The Carson City Parks and Recreation Department is training volunteers for its’ Community Center Theater for productions: light and sound technicians. They really need an usher coordinator to keep all these ushers coordinated. This is exciting work and you get to see all the great shows in the theater. Also looking for volunteers for daytime building monitors, custodians, and maintenance.

We have some exciting new volunteer positions coming up so be sure to keep checking our column for them.

All volunteers receive orientation and training. Also, volunteers can receive out-of-pocket expenses and are covered by several insurances. For details call Carol, 775-687-4680 x 6.
