RSVP of Northeast Kansas

Goal: $10,000.00

Specific Need

RSVP volunteers have provided transportation for Veterans to VA appointments and cancer patients to receive chemo and radiation treatments.  These appointments can range from Manhattan to Topeka to Kansas City to Lincoln, Nebraska.  RSVP attempts to reimburse the volunteers for their mileage, but we have recently run out of budgeted funds for these trips.  Money from the 2018 Pony Up Marysville event will help to increase the funding for volunteer reimbursement costs, as well as, provide additional funding for RSVP when needed.


To provide our citizens, ages 55 and older, a variety of opportunities to participate more fully in the life of their community through significant volunteer service.


RSVP’s primary focus area is in Healthy Futures.  Volunteers provide home delivered hot and frozen meals and wellness checks to handicapped, homebound and/or elderly individuals through Marshall County Meals on Wheels programs and RSVP’s Freezer Meal program.  Volunteers also educate clients on choosing Medicare Part D Prescription Insurance or Affordable Care Act Insurance.


Under other focus areas, RSVP volunteers are also involved in:


  • working in local food pantries;
  • listening to children read in local elementary schools;
  • providing tax preparation and filing assistance to the elderly and those with low- to moderate-incomes through the IRS’ VITA program; and
  • Area Veterans who are also RSVP volunteers are part of the Honor Guard, honoring our fallen soldiers. 


Other volunteers involved with RSVP:


  • assist nonprofit agencies with fundraising efforts;
  • perform all duties involved in the local Bloodmobile, with the exception of drawing and handling blood donations; and
  • provide direct service or support services at 30 Marshall County organizations
    • These duties may include serving meals at nutrition sites; providing entertainment or companionship at nursing facilities; providing access to museums, art centers and State Historic Sites; and drop-off recycling.
