Celebrate Older Americans Month in May

Every May since 1963, people in towns and cities across the country have come together to celebrate the enormous contributions of older Americans, who are the roots from which our community grows, who bestow gifts of wisdom and insight upon younger generations, and strengthen the bonds between neighbors to create a better place to live. Older Americans Month is our chance to show our appreciation and support to our seniors as they continue to enrich and strengthen our communities.



This year the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services is focusing on injury prevention with the theme "Safe Today, Healthy Tomorrow@. By taking control of their safety, older Americans can live longer, healthier lives. RSVP is focused on making sure our volunteers are happy and healthy year round. Many studies show that volunteering helps you live longer, stay healthier, and promotes a positive outlook on life.



Help us celebrate Older Americans Month! Join your neighbors not only to recognize what older citizens bring to our communities, but also to help them continue playing a vital role in weaving a unique and lasting community fabric. Contact RSVP in Macon or DeWitt County to find out

about the many volunteer opportunities available in your community. We think you will discover that when you help seniors thrive in your community, you gain far more than you give.
