Green Mountain RSVP seeks volunteers for postcard project

BRATTLEBORO — Green Mountain RSVP (GMRSVP) is planning for the 2022 MLK Day of Service Sunshine Project.

GMRSVP is recruiting volunteers aged 55 and older to help bring smiles to seniors who are confined to their homes by writing cheerful notes on postcards. Materials will be provided, and safe drop off/pick up/delivery of postcards will be coordinated by GMRSVP staff.

Postcards will be delivered to clients of partner agencies in January 2022 to coincide with MLK Day of Service.

“The pandemic has affected the mental health of many seniors because of social isolation,” GMRSVP said in a news release.

To register as an AmeriCorps Seniors Volunteer for this remote project, contact [email protected] or call 802-254-7515.

Green Mountain RSVP, an AmeriCorps Seniors program, is sponsored by the Bennington-based Southwestern Vermont Council on Aging and serves Bennington, Windham, and Windsor counties.
