Retired Senior Volunteers Given Millions Hours Service A recent survey indicates that 220,000 Retired Senior Volunteer Program RSVP, volunteers contributed over 40,353,000 hours toward helping to meet basic human needs during a one-year period. By the end of fiscal year 1978, RSVP estimates that 250,000 volunteers will be providing 52 million hours of service to their communities throughout the United States. ACTION, The federal volunteer service agency, ad- ministers RSVP -- the largest of three Older American Volunteer programs OAVP, within the agency. RSVP volunteers are at least 60 years of age and serve through non-profit community- based organizations in ap- proximately 690 urba atd rural locations The program has no income requirements. The choice of service roles offered each volunteer is wide. The survey, conducted by OAVP headquarters in Washington, DC., noted that volunteers are involved with a variety of health and nutrition, education, housing, energy conservation, economic development, com- munity services and legal rights projects. "RSVP volunteers are in an especially strong position to, counteract conditions in their communities which go against their own good and that of other citizens", notes Helen Kelley, director of OAVP. The survey found that 43 percent of the program's volunteers devoted 17,432,781 hours to health.nutrition ac- tivities during the period under study, and found that a total of 270,370 hours were devoted to legal rights projects throughout the country. The other programs ad- ministered by OAVP are the Foster Grandparent Program, which answers the needs of special children, and the Senior Companion program, which gives assistance to the frail elderly. Both0f these programs are designed to use the skills o[ low-income seniors as volun- teers. RSVP, which is continually growing, now has 235,000 Volunteers. "The three programs that make, up OAVP are all" concerned with applying the energy, talents, warmth and love of older people towards meeting basic human needs. There can be no question in RSVP communities that both the volunteers and the communities benefit enormously. This is as it should he", states Mrs. Kelley. ACTION programs also in- dude Volunteers In Service to America VISTA, and University Year for ACTION at home and the Peace Corps overseas. Sam Brown is the director of AC- TION.

Homemakers can contribute in many ways to energy sav- ing in the home. The kitchen is usually the most energy intensive area in the home. Practicing good appliance use and care hellas; and of course, water conservation through- out the house is top priority. How about meal preparation?
