Seattle Cancer Care Alliance was recently accepted as a Retired & Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP) partner organization. RSVP is part of Senior Corps, a federally funded program within the Corporation for National and Community Service. The program works to make volunteering easy and rewarding by connecting community members age 55 and older to meaningful volunteer opportunities.
SCCA is just one of over 50 non-profit organizations in King County that has partnered with RSVP to encourage and support volunteerism. RSVP and their partner organizations work together to place RSVP members in volunteer projects that are the right fit by providing a wide range of opportunities that draw on the volunteer’s interests and strengths.
“This is a great opportunity to extend our recruitment efforts and partner to find amazing volunteers,” says Erica Karlovits, SCCA’s volunteer services manager.
SCCA’s Volunteer Services Department looks forward to working with RSVP to demonstrate the positive impact that senior volunteers can have on SCCA, especially for patients and their families.
