REALTOR® Volunteer Service Program (RSVP)
Providing a Helping Hand

What is RSVP?
RSVP is a one-day community outreach program that will take place on Wednesday, May 9, 2018, during "Adopt-A-Senior" Week. The program provides free assistance to qualified seniors who cannot otherwise perform certain household tasks due to physical or financial constraints. This will be RSVP's eleventh year running!
