WASHINGTON – Congressman Dave Joyce (OH-14) today announced that the Willoughby Eastlake School District will receive $45,339 from the Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS) to support its 450 Senior Corps Retired and Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP) volunteers. Established in 1971, RSVP engages Americans age 55 and older in citizen service that addresses the nation’s most pressing challenges, such as fighting the opioid epidemic, reducing crime and reviving cities, connecting veterans to jobs and benefits, preparing today’s students for tomorrow’s jobs, and ensuring seniors age independently and with dignity.

“Senior Corps RSVP does incredible work in our Northeast Ohio communities,” said Dave. “I’m proud to support this important program and look forward to seeing the positive impact the Willoughby Eastlake School District and its dedicated volunteers will continue to have thanks in part to the resources provided by this grant.”

“RSVP of Lake County currently has over 500 senior volunteers serving at over 70 nonprofit and government agencies,” said Christen Kane, the RSVP Director of W-E School of Innovation. “We are excited to continue the 46-year tradition of fulfilling community needs through volunteer service.”

Senior Corps is a program of the CNCS, the federal agency for volunteering and service. CNCS engages millions of Americans of all ages and backgrounds in service each year through its AmeriCorps and Senior Corps programs and leads volunteer and civic engagement initiatives for the nation. Today, Senior Corps engages approximately 220,000 Americans at 25,000 locations across the nation through its Foster Grandparent, Senior Companion, and RSVP programs.
