RVNA is looking for caring individuals who are interested in volunteering. Those that are interested should register to participate in this informational orientation session to learn more about RVNA, what the agency does, and what volunteer opportunities are available.
Volunteers are the backbone of RVNA, and are an essential part of the agency’s success. RVNA volunteers provide support to flu and pneumonia clinics, well child clinics, and blood pressure clinics. Some volunteers help to plan and implement the annual RVNA Health & Wellness Fair, which takes place each spring. Others donate their time to provide office and clerical support, serve as a Friendly Visitor, or help at community events and educational seminars. Many other opportunities exist as well.
