RSVP of Santa Rosa County and Santa Rosa Medical Center seeking vendors

Businesses and community service groups are invited to reserve space at the 2018 Senior Expo and Health Fair to be held at the Guy Thompson Community Center in Milton March 15 from 8 a.m.-noon .

This year’s Expo and Health Fair will feature two parts, with members of the Santa Rosa Medical Center staff offering free health screenings and information on specific health issues currently facing seniors.

Organizations focusing on or serving seniors in the surrounding area can be showcasing their products and services at the same time.

Booth spaces can be to hand out information, meet seniors face to face or give out items that can assist seniors in their daily lives. Special giveaways unique to each company or organization will also be allowed and will be a great way to get names and contact information regarding future customers.

This year’s the Senior Expo and Health Fair is hosted by the Retired Senior Volunteer Program, which is the nation’s largest volunteer network for people 55 and older; City of Milton; and Woodmen Life. It is also supported by Santa Rosa Medical Center, but more sponsorship opportunities remain if companies or organizations would like to take a more active/leadership role in this annual event.

For more information about the Senior Expo and Health Fair, contact Faye Henry with the Retired Senior Volunteer Program at (850) 983-5220.

About the Retired Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP)

The Retired Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP) helps participating organizations coordinate volunteer projects and special event staffing. RSVP is a grant-funded program for retired senior volunteers who live in Santa Rosa County. It offers a full range of volunteer opportunities with local organizations. For example, a senior may want to mentor or tutor children; assist victims of natural disasters; clean up the environment; lead fundraising efforts; sort food; provide hungry children a nutritious, easy to prepare meal; or respond to community needs in many other ways.

Whatever a volunteer chooses to do, they will be making a difference - stronger families, better schools and safer communities. With RSVP, volunteers will see tangible outcomes and learn, firsthand, how their contributions can change their communities.

Volunteers are not just helping others, they are helping themselves, as well. Volunteering leads to new discoveries and new friends. Plus, studies show that volunteering helps people live longer and promotes a positive outlook on life.
