Special Thanks to: LaVaughn Coulter who recently shared with RSVP the Christmas ornament she crafted of cardboard and material.  Her 100 ornaments were donated to Peterson Rehab Center in Wheeling for residents to enjoy.  She contributed as a member of the Women’s Club of Wheeling.

LaVaughn started with RSVP on August 25, 2008, because she likes helping organizations.  She stated she was sitting at home and had to get out and do something.  Her first service was the American Red Cross (129 Hours) with Blood Drives where she still serves today as greeter and canteen assistant.

She currently has (2,481 outreach hours) serving the Northern Panhandle with organizations such as: Daughters of the Nile Group and Osiris Shrines where she assists with making favors for Erie, PA hospitals.  For Easter she makes 75 little bunnies to contribute from herself alone.

Through the Wheeling Women’s Club she makes favors for Ohio Valley and Wheeling Medical Center pediatrics dept.  As a group they make 100 favors each month.

She assists with meals for funerals and is also involved with AARP as a board member.  She Works the Holy Family Food Pantry in Beech Bottom approx. 6 hours each week. 

LaVaughn has served 21.5 hours assisting RSVP, Weirton United Way, and Easter Seals with fundraising events.   She helps with other service projects such as MLK Day Break Bread with Bruins pictured to the right.
