RSVP 9/11 Day of Service Project
The Retired and Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP) of Montgomery County and Radford Advisory Council voted to send baskets filled with baked goods and prepackaged snacks to twenty-three emergency service agencies in Montgomery County and the City of Radford.
Twenty-one volunteers and community members joined in to donate needed items! To ensure that the baskets were delivered before Patriot Day, seven community members and RSVP volunteers completed delivery of baskets and trays of baked goods on September 9th.
We would like to thank Montgomery County Supervisor Sherri Blevins for your assistance with packing, delivery, and the ongoing support of RSVP Volunteers! We would also like to thank Sharon Brown, Carol Trutt, Taska Bailey, Brenda Arnold, Rosemary Jones, and Shirley Mullins for your assistance with delivery!
Our ongoing mission is to take back the day, transform the anniversary of 9/11 into a national day of doing good, and in the process rekindle the spirit of unity that arose in America in the immediate aftermath of the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.
Through our diverse programs, including organizing volunteer projects, creating national public service messages, operating this website, and providing free lesson plans, toolkits, and other resources to tens of thousands of organizations, schools, employers, and other groups, we annually encourage tens of millions of Americans to volunteer, support charities, and perform other good deeds and acts of kindness that help others in the spirit of remembrance, unity, and service.
In this way, we seek to keep our promise to “Never Forget.” – 911 Day
