RSVP Walk-a-thon a Success

RSVP Walk-a-thon a SuccessRSVP of Montgomery County and Radford held its 12th Annual Walk-A-Thon to benefit Supplies for Seniors. The event was held on Thursday, October 10 from 10-12 at the Christiansburg Recreation Center.

In January 2020, the RSVP Supplies for Seniors project will provide many homebound seniors and veterans in Montgomery County and Radford with personal and household supplies when bad weather and high heating bills increase their hardship level. Michael Barber, Mayor of Christiansburg, lead the first lap and 35 RSVP volunteers and community members walked 274 laps or 34 miles to kick off the Supplies for Seniors fundraising event.

To date, $1,156 has been collected and donations are continuing to come in. We would like to recognize Christiansburg Recreation Center, AARP, and Cora Physical Therapy for sponsoring the event. We would also like to thank Carilion NRV Medical Center for donating bottled water and a door prize for this year’s event.

You can continue to support this program through monetary donations or donate the following supplies: Toilet Paper, Paper Towels, Soap, Deodorant, Lotion, Shampoo, Conditioner, Detergent, Tissues, Cleaning Supplies, Trash Bags, Crossword/Word Search Puzzles, Toothbrush, Dish Detergent, Disinfectant Wipes, Foil and Plastic Wrap.
