It’s time to serve those who served

To the editor:

Monadnock RSVP Volunteer Center will carry out a National Day of Service and Remembrance on Sept. 11 to provide support to veterans and immediate military family members throughout the Monadnock region.

We are seeking veterans and adults age 55 and over to serve in teams to help less-able veterans and their families with home repairs, weatherization and seasonal projects. Volunteers with special skills, as well as willing laborers, are welcome.

The National Day of Service and Remembrance is now the nation’s largest day of charitable engagement. It was developed to provide a permanent and constructive way for individuals to annually remember and pay tribute to those lost and injured on 9/11, and to help recall and rekindle the spirit of unity, compassion and service that existed in America following the 9/11 attacks. Together, with the Monadnock United Way with their Days of Caring, businesses and many community volunteers, we aspire to make this a significant event in the region.

For more information to volunteer, or to request help with a project if you are a veteran or immediate military family member, please call Monadnock RSVP at 357-6893 or 924-7350 for the Greater Peterborough area. Monadnock RSVP Volunteer Center is a program of Monadnock Family Services, a Monadnock United Way Agency.
