Community: RSVP recognizes volunteers

  • 0

On March 29 the Retired and Senior Volunteer Program of Montgomery County and Radford held a drive-thru recognition event. It was a beautiful day for the occasion and RSVP staff were happy to see some of their volunteers for the first time since the beginning of the pandemic.

Approximately 50 volunteers signed up to participate in the event. Volunteers received a T-shirt, tumbler, hand sanitizer and reusable bag with RSVP’s new federal logo printed on them.

The mission of RSVP is to provide a wide variety of opportunities for persons age 55 or older to participate more fully in the life of their community through significant volunteer service. For more information, call 382-5775 or email hayesaw@montgomerycountyva.gov.

The U.S. has announced a shipment of $100 million in military equipment to Ukraine, separate from what will be coming from the $40 billion approved by Congress.

The loudest voices in the abortion debate are often characterized along a starkly religious divide, the faithful versus not. But the reality is much more nuanced, both at an Alabama abortion clinic and in the nation that surrounds it. The clinic’s staff of 11 — most of them Black, deeply faithful Christian women — have no trouble at all reconciling their work with their religion. And as the U.S. Supreme Court appears poised to dismantle the constitutional right to an abortion, they draw on their faith that they will somehow continue. God is on our side, they tell each other. God will keep this clinic open.
