National Day of Service Seniors Helping Veterans
CORPUS CHRISTI, TX – This year, our nation will mark the 16th anniversary of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks. The anniversary is a day of history, emotion, and reflection for Americans. This day symbolizes the resilience, kindness, and unity of the American people.
Since 9/11, millions of Americans have engaged in service on its anniversary as a productive and respectful way to commemorate the tragedy. It also creates a legacy of compassion and action to help meet the challenges we face today. For this year’s National Day of Remembrance, the City of Corpus Christi’s Retired and Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP) and the Senior Companion Program (SCP) will provide Veterans housed in the Agnes Courts Apartments, 3511 Agnes Street, with canned goods, personal hygiene products, and household supplies.
The Corpus Christi RSVP and SCP are federally funded by the Corporation for National and Community Services. Since 1977, the City of Corpus Christi has been the local sponsor which operates under the Parks & Recreation Department. This program has saved our community thousands of dollars. Last year, both programs volunteered 122, 211 hours of volunteer service within the Nueces County.
