RSVP 2013 Competition Appendix A Part 1 Funding Opportunities
An estimated 335 RSVP volunteers will serve. They will assist the elderly and disabled with food delivery, transportation and companionship. They will help collect food, organize and stock local food pantries and distribute to victims of disasters. Senior volunteers will also support firefighters by providing food, water and a place of respite at the scene of a fire or natural disaster. Finally, volunteers will support local hospitals in the gift shops and auxiliary activities and prepare, serve and support meals at congregate meal centers. Their activities will be organized through 30 volunteer stations. The primary focus area of this project is Healthy Futures. As a result of the volunteer's investment, 431 of the individuals touched by the RSVP Healthy Futures activities will report an increase in social ties/perceived social support. The CNCS federal investment of $41,643 will be supplemented by $30,315.
