This week was a rough week for RSVP. We had two food distributions and had to move to a new office. The county was very efficient in moving the office, but they wouldn’t stick around to unload all the boxes and put everything away. Things are pretty much in order at this time, but we do have quite a bit of more work to do before it’s really presentable.
I do hope you all went and enjoyed the Arts in the Park event. I was there and it was very crowded.
The Art Bank was also open and I do hope you took a few moments to stop by and look at the artwork.
The Sagebrush Quilters had quite the show. I hope you didn’t miss this year’s display.
I have not heard how the book sale went at the library. Hopefully some of you stopped by and found a book you like.
Many people have asked me how can one contribute to the RSVP programs. The best way to contribute is to make a financial donation, mailed to 2621 Northgate Ln., Suite 6, Carson City, NV 89706.
You may choose to donate to any of our programs. Funds are always needed for our respite program, housekeeping program and transportation.
If you have any questions on what programs you would like to donate to, please call me at 775-289-6323.
