Helping America's Most Vulnerable

Volunteers of America Honors RSVP Senior Volunteers Who Have Served in the Military

Volunteers of America Greater New Orleans hosted a special Veterans Corps Pinning Ceremony and Breakfast in Mandeville, LA, on November 8, 2016, to honor senior citizens in its Retired Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP) who are military Veterans.

In 2015, the Corporation for National and Community Service formed Veterans Corps. This group represents those who honorably served in our armed forces and continue to serve their country through Volunteers of America Greater New Orleans' Retired Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP) and other initiatives. RSVP is for those 55 and older to give back their time, skills and talents to the residents of St. Tammany Parish.

This year, Volunteers of America Greater New Orleans added 15 new members to its Veterans Corps, bringing the total number of members to 49.

At the pinning ceremony, a specially designed Senior Corps Veterans pin was given to each member of the Veterans Corps to signify the individual's commitment to our nation through their military service and volunteer activity through RSVP.
