Retired & Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP)

R.S.V.P. volunteers, 55 years of age and above, provide a lifetime of experience to the agencies they serve. Seniors stay active and contribute valuable experience to many local non profits. Special events are offered for our senior volunteers including the annual Recognition Luncheon recognizing their support to Kern County's local agencies.   

Volunteer your time serving the homeless, assisting children in conquering learning difficulties,  finding loving homes for abused/abandoned animals, providing respite opportunities for caregivers and much, much more!

Veteran Blanket/Beanie/Glove/Sock Drive held on Wednesday, November 30th, 2022  was a success thanks to you!

RSVP partnered with the Kern County Veterans Collaborative & Wounded Heroes to sponsor a Blanket/Beanie/Glove/Sock/Jacket Drive event benifitting our veteran/disabled in the community.

We will be doing this on an annual basis and we are accepting donations all year long. Donate a new item to help out our local Veterans in need. 

You can donate monetarily as well. The Veterans Collaborative gives food donations to our local Veterans as well.
