A Special Thank You

Our volunteers were hard at work this summer helping CHANGE Inc. with the “Children’s Summer Lunch Program” at Follansbee Park and Betty Carr Park in Wellsburg.  There were days in June they had up to 86 children to serve a day.  Thank you for your hard work, we greatly appreciate your dedication.  Mary Schwertfeger, Margaret Freshwater, Julia Stankevich, Vivian Hunt, Bernard Hunt, good job!

RSVP would like to extend a heart-felt thank you to the Appalachian Outreach in Marshall County.  We appreciate you sharing your booth with RSVP for recruiting new volunteers.
