Retired Service Volunteers
The Retired Service Volunteers have been serving nonprofit organizations in La Cañada Flintridge and the surrounding region since 1976. The RSV program gives seniors an opportunity to get out and socialize with friends while providing a very useful service and support to nonprofit groups that contribute to the strength of our community.
RSVs meet Friday mornings in the ALF Chapter Meeting Room, behind the Bargain Box Thrift Shop. RSV members provide free collating, labeling, folding, mail preparation services and other tasks while they enjoy their time together. ALF and CAP volunteers are also on hand to help with the project. When the work is done, RSVs enjoy a lunch prepared and served by ALF and CAP volunteers.
In addition, Assistance League of Flintridge provides the Retired Senior Volunteers with special parties, programs and outings, held just for RSV members. Once a month, CAP Members also bake one large cake to honor those RSVs who are celebrating a birthday during that month. Last year, one of the RSVs turned 100 years old!

Attention Nonprofit Organizations
The Retired Service Volunteers free service is available for any nonprofit group in La Cañada Flintridge and the surrounding area. RSVs are always looking for new projects that are simple tasks and can be done while chatting with friends. Be sure to plan ahead to ensure that the RSVs have time on their schedule the week you need your project completed. To reserve your time, contact RetiredServiceVolunteers@gmail.com .
Zoo Day Was a Great Success
As a “thank you” to the Retired Service Volunteers for supporting their mailing projects this year, the Los Angeles Zoo’s Special Needs Outreach docents came for a visit, sharing a wealth of information and a few animals.
