The Volunteer Connection
This continues RSVP’s regular Sunday column of volunteer opportunities.
• The Children’s Museum needs docents through Aug.19 to oversee the LEGO exhibit.
• Ormsby Association for Retarded Citizens needs volunteers for its thrift store to sort, hang and organize clothing. This is their big source of funds.
• Western Nevada College needs ushers for Western Nevada Musical Theatre Company’s November production. Will receive free refreshments, a show souvenir, and be allowed to watch performances free of charge.
• Drivers urgently needed for RSVP Carson City to provide seniors with transportation to the doctor. RSVP has a van available for drivers’ use, or if preferred drive your own vehicle and get mileage reimbursement. Getting to the doctor is so important to seniors staying healthy.
• 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.
• 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.
• The Northern Nevada Railway Foundation has some exciting events coming up and needs volunteers to help at the office. This helps the V&T Railroad.
• 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. Also looking for volunteers for daytime building monitors, custodians, and maintenance.
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.
