BAL­TI­MORE COUNTY— Bal­ti­more County Depart­ment of Ag­ing (BCDA) had a blast cel­e­brat­ing their Re­tired Se­nior Volunteer Pro­gram (RSVP) vol­un­teers at the Ateaze Se­nior Cen­ter Coun­cil on Fri­day. This was one of three re­gional events be­ing held, with so­cial dis­tanc­ing prac­tices, to honor the vol­un­teers that have of­fered over 100 hours of ser vice last year to their lo­cal se­nior cen­ters.

“The smiles of our ded­i­cated vol­un­teers and BCDA staff show how grate­ful we were to be to­gether for this drive thru event,” BCDA said in a

Face­book post.

RSVP vol­un­teers are matched with volunteer sta­tions based on ar­eas of in­ter­est and skill. Vol­un­teers are able to ser ve in one or more ca­pac­i­ties, with the pri­mar y fo­cuses be­ing on: healthy fu­tures, ed­u­ca­tion, eco­nomic em­pow­er­ment and en­vi­ron­men­tal stew­ard­ship.
