RSVP Volunteer hard at work:  A little more about Becky Weigand (Wigand) from Wheeling WV.  She started with RSVP on February 2, 2010, assisting at West Virginia Birth to Three Years doing clerical service, and currently serving a total of 858 hours.  Becky was then recruited in July of 2012 to assist with the Easter Seals Rehabilitation Center Root Beer fundraising event, serving 5 hours.  On September 7, 2011, Becky started also serving with the RSVP program at Warwood Christian Church Food Pantry assisting with preparing and distributing food items, currently serving a total of 273 hours where she had been serving five years prior to her RSVP registration.

While serving at the above sites, Becky has also been doing outreach service within her community serving 338 hours.  She approached me at the last Christmas Party, stating she didn’t get the call for training to assist with AARP Tax Preparing.  We had missed Becky on our list and she was persistent to approach us again.  We would have missed a treasure.  She was quick to train and considered to be a valuable asset to her co-volunteers.  We look forward to her service next year.  Her 90 plus hours of service with AARP assisted the team in preparing over 600 tax returns. Her one day a week commitment turned into two days. Becky’s service and commitment greatly impacts her community.  Becky’s year to date service of 1,562 hours has added to her community $24,600. Great service to your community Becky! Some history about Becky: she moved to the Wheeling in 1979 to further her education.  She worked at the Ohio Valley Hospital while finishing her Bachelor’s Degree, also working and being on call. She worked as an RN - First Assistant in the operating room thirty-four years.  Her hobbies are reading, gardening, crocheting, needle point, and she is very active in her church.  She is passionate about Shoe Box Christmas Child.  Becky is married to Paul and proud step parent of two boys.
