Help Seniors in Jersey City!

first-aid-boxWant to help local homebound seniors prepare for emergencies? RSVP is the Nation’s largest volunteer network for people ages 55+, and is coming to Jersey City on Wednesday, April 22nd from 10am-1pm.

United Way of Hudson County, and the Secaucus Senior Center are joining forces to make 200 disaster kits for local homebound seniors in case of emergencies. Volunteers are needed at the Secaucus Senior Center to assist with registration, unpack supplies, and put the disaster kits together.

Individuals choose where to serve, how much time to give, and whether they will share skills they already have or develop new ones.   Volunteer activities include helping seniors get access to the healthcare they need, visiting homebound adults, providing critical disaster preparedness and response, providing nonprofit clerical support, and working in local soup kitchens and food pantries. The Disaster Kit Volunteer Service Day is just one example of the important work RSVP volunteers do every day.

To get started: Visit United Hudson and call Alexandra Nagy (201) 526-9706 or email her at anagy@jfsmetrowest.org
