In January 2012, United Way 2-1-1 Volunteer Center opened up a new volunteer project with Salt Lake County’s Retired Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP).  RSVP is part of the Corporation for National and Community Service and is America’s largest volunteer network for people age 55 and over.  Retired individuals sign up and volunteer their time with a number of local projects.

This new project at United Way 2-1-1 Volunteer Center was developed to help schedule appointments for the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program throughout the state of Utah.  We are lucky to have nine fabulous ladies as part of the information specialist team.  They take calls as well as remind people about their upcoming tax appointment. The RSVP volunteers provide a necessary service to low-income people and families all over the state.  We are so grateful for their time and efforts. Thank you Judy Spratling, Lucy Tucker, Camille Fowler, Gina Gianelo, Leona Blackbird, Pat Kirk, Diane Schnarr, Marilee Flynn, and Jackie Middlebrook!
