The AmeriCorps Seniors Association of MN Fall Conference kicks off today in Red Wing.
Sue Degallier, Director of Active Aging Programs for Catholic Charities of Southern Minnesota, says in Red Wing, their Retired Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP) supports volunteers in a number of ways, including meal delivery with Benedictine and volunteers working with Rise Up Red Wing.
Degallier says the program also helps the non-profits in recruiting volunteers.
All directors and staff who run AmeriCorps Seniors programs throughout Minnesota are meeting at the St. James Hotel through Friday.
Every year, AmeriCorps Seniors matches over 140,000 volunteers with service opportunities offered by partner organizations.
