More than 25 RSVP volunteers and members of Volunteer Pulaski participated in the ninth annual Supplies for Seniors program in conjunction with the Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service.
The goal of the program is to assist seniors and veterans stretch their limited income and provide basic necessities while they struggle with increased food, heating and medical expenses. The program serves as a support system to help them maintain their dignity and independence while remaining in their home environment.
The event begins with bagging basic household supplies and personal care items for 200 homebound seniors and veterans in Montgomery County, Pulaski County, and the City of Radford. The bags are then delivered to each home by agency staff, volunteers and local law enforcement officers.
If you are interested in becoming a sponsor of this worthwhile program, please contact RSVP at 382-5775 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
