Our Fundraising Campaign
In 2018 and 2019, RSVP presented “Veterans & Their Caregivers” Resource Fair which was held at the Carson Nugget. This community resource fair drew over 100 attendees including Veterans, participating organizations, and event sponsors. Exhibitors hosted display tables offering attendees valuable information on veterans-related resources, benefits, and services.
2020 Veterans & Their Caregivers Resource Fair was cancelled due to COVID-19.
In 2021 RSVP hosted a virtual 5k/10k run – walk – jog: “Steppin’ Up for Seniors”. This inaugural fundraiser celebrates RSVP volunteers in April in honor of National Volunteer Appreciation Month and to recognize the volunteers who bring lifesaving services to seniors and others in need every day of the year. This event is held throughout the month of April. Participants can practice social distancing by choosing their location, whether on the treadmill or in any neighborhood.
“To recognize our volunteers and help our seniors, we’re hosting Steppin’ Up For Seniors. Participating in this fun and engaging event is a great way to stay fit, while helping your senior family members, friends, and neighbors, and celebrate volunteer appreciation month with RSVP. These virtual race events can often go nation-wide. This is an opportunity to blend a Virtual Race into a fundraiser, bring the community together in any neighborhood, and help support the much-needed independent living services our vulnerable citizens need”, said Molly Walt, Chief Executive Officer of RSVP.
Proceeds from RSVP fundraising events help support direct costs and operational costs to maintain continuity of the lifesaving stand-alone independent living programs for the most vulnerable persons in need.
