RSVP responded to a
GAP was started in 2009 because there was only one grocery store in Greene County to accommodate the area and surrounding communities.
Individuals eligible for GAP in communities outside of Jefferson may have a harder time with their grocery shopping.
The purpose of GAP is to help clients maintain their independence and remain in their homes by performing a function necessary for independent living. Client participation may be short term (due to illness or recuperation) or long term.
In addition to maintaining their independence, RSVP would like to help potential GAP clients do fun things with family and friends instead of spending their time together grocery shopping.
Would you like to volunteer
and help others
maintain their Independence?
As a GAP volunteer,
Help homebound, disabled or town bound individuals in your community live
independently. Grocery shop for individuals so they can have fresh produce, dairy products and other needed items. Develop lasting friendships. GAP exists because of the dedication and service of our GAP volunteers.
