RSVP Supplies for Seniors Project
Volunteers from RSVP and community members joined together to bag the 15th Annual Supplies for Seniors project in conjunction with the Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service initiative. Since 1994, thousands of Americans will remember Dr. King by providing service to their communities.
The project took place at the Christiansburg Recreation Center on January 18th and the supplies will be delivered to everyone by January 31st.
As a result, 215 homebound seniors and veterans living in Montgomery County and the City of Radford received about $50 worth of basic household supplies and personal care products.
We want to express our appreciation to all of the volunteers who worked tirelessly moving supplies, sorting, bagging, and delivering. Heartfelt thanks go out to Montgomery County Supervisor Sherri Blevins, Sharon Brown, Jill Songer, Taska Bailey, Brenda Arnold, Shirley Mullins, Rosemary Jones, Carol Kauffman, Regina Howard, Sarah Carter, Raymond Lyons, Ron Hall, Sandy Cox, Robbie Hall, Sharon Hall, Carol Trutt, Jolene Rawlings, Rich Rawlings, Lynn Brammer of Master Gardeners Association, Shannon Cook and Kaitlyn Collins of Volunteer Pulaski, Tammy Caldwell, Jim Whetzel, Brandon Decker, Nate Hall, Darren Graham, Ryan Hubble, Wil Oldham, Shawn Stump, Dylan Vest, Isaac Ritenour, Aaron Weber, and Dru Yopp of Christiansburg Parks and Recreation, Christiansburg Police Department, City of Radford Police Department, Blacksburg Police Department, Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office, and the NRV Agency on Aging for their partnership and support of this project. We would also like to thank Janet Brennend of the New River Valley Agency on Aging, Rich Rawlings, Jolene Rawlings, and Robbie Hall for helping with the delivery of bags.
