During tax season, McCormick volunteers with VITA three evenings a week and a full day on Saturdays.
He says he likes volunteering with RSVP because it is a structured program. He also gets “internal satisfaction” through his volunteer work. Volunteering makes him feel more part of the community, he says.
RSVP, the country’s largest volunteer network for people 55-years or older, provides individualized support to connect volunteers with service opportunities in and around Arlington County, Fairfax County and the City of Alexandria that complement volunteers’ interests and skills.
RSVP volunteers enjoy flexible schedules, free accident and liability insurance while serving, optional mileage and meal reimbursement and are invited to volunteer group projects and social events.
RSVP offers a wide array of opportunities for volunteers including providing rides, support and meals to older neighbors, assisting local veterans in need and helping prepare communities for disasters. In addition to his VITA work, McCormick is a volunteer guide for the National Park Service at the
United States Marine Corps War Memorial
in Arlington, better known as
the Iwo Jima Memorial.
