Goodbye Tom & Scotty - RSVP Ambassadors on Wheels

Goodbye Tom & Scotty - RSVP Ambassadors on Wheels
Written by Patricia Dowling on 2012-12-31


RSVP is very sad to inform our volunteers and volunteer supervisors that we will no longer be able to offer RSVP van service for those volunteers who otherwise had no transportation to their volunteer sites.
This means that we also have to say good-bye to our two beloved RSVP van drivers: William “Scotty” Scott, and Thomas Melson. These two exceptional gentlemen have been the careful stewards...(Read More)

Focus Area: Helping Veterans and their Families
Written by Patricia Dowling on 2012-12-30

Written by Patricia Dowling on 2012-12-26


“A ship is safe in harbor, but that's not what ships are for.”

In 2011, RSVP launched an exciting new partnership with Closing the Gap (a program of Catholic Charities) to open opportunities for RSVP volunteers to serve in classrooms in the Buffalo Public Schools.

University Express Fall 2012

University Express Fall 2012
Written by Patricia Dowling on 2012-10-04


If we had a dollar for every time people said, “I’ve never heard of RSVP”, or “Why haven’t I heard about University Express classes sooner?” RSVP would certainly have a significant sum of money! We dreamed of ways that we could have more name recognition, and our greatest wish was a TV commercial.

A few months ago, we were presented with the opportunity to make our wish come true!...(Read More)
