Dear Community members,
On behalf of the Retired and Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP) and Care Connection for Aging Services, I would like to cordially invite you to participate in our 9/11 National Day of Service and Remembrance RSVP Food Drives, September 9th through September 13th, 2013.
RSVP is America’s largest volunteer network for people age 55 and better and is sponsored by Care Connection for Aging Services. RSVP works with community non-profits to recruit volunteers who would like to put their skills and experience to work serving the residents of Benton, Cedar, Henry, Hickory, and St. Clair Counties.
On the anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, as a way to pay tribute to, and remember the victims and others we wish to honor, we put aside whatever differences we may have at the moment, and work together to help others in need. More than 30 million people observed 9/11 each year by doing good deeds and engaging in other forms of charitable service, making September 11 the largest day of charitable activity in U.S. history.
Strongly supported as a nonpartisan observance by Republicans, Democrats and Independents alike. 9/11 is a day when we all put our differences aside in dedication to the 9/11 victims and the many who gave assistance, and continue to serve, often without regard to their own personal safety.
To date, we have invited State Representatives, City and County Officials; Police and Fire Departments, the local media, as well as civic organizations and businesses. We would be honored to include you as another participant in the 9/11 National Day of Service and Remembrance RSVP Food Drive in your county.
If your schedule permits you to attend or if you have further questions about the event(s), please contact RSVP at firstname.lastname@example.org or 417-282-7787.
