AmeriCorps Week honored! The week of March 9, 2013, RSVP celebrated 800,000 men and women who have taken the AmeriCorps pledge and the billions of hours they've served to make America stronger. Thank you to all past and present VISTAs and all other AmeriCorps Members who have had a hand in making the RSVP After School Adventures Program a great success!

RSVP would like to take this time to recognize our own VISTA, Alina Hopkins, and thank her for renewing her membership one more year with RSVP ASAP.

A little more about Alina:  Alina Lauren Hopkins is a California native, turned West Virginian in February 2012. Alina is here as an AmeriCorps Volunteer in Service to America or VISTA, and currently on her second year. Her first year she served in Marshall County and now she is serving Brooke County. “Being an AmeriCorps VISTA is really great. I get to make a real difference in people’s lives while making a difference in my own life,” Alina says, “I have met so many people and have grown professionally as well as personally over the last year. I am proud to be an AmeriCorps VISTA.”

Some of Alina’s accomplishments were to help establish a community garden in Benwood-McMechen community, she started a Panera Bread weekly donation, helped to raise $10,000 of in-kind donations, and she implemented three major service projects that benefited active military men and women and Veterans.

Alina currently has an estimated 2,080 hours of service in 2012 at the dollar value of volunteer service of $21.79/hour with RSVP ASAP. 

Alina’s year to date service has added to her community $19,936.  Great service to your community, Alina!
