Long-time Retired and Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP) volunteer Harry Schreiber passed away in January at the age of 90. He will be dearly missed by Solid Ground’s RSVP family.
For the past 25 years, Harry recorded nearly 16,000 hours of volunteer service through RSVP. Since 2014, he served as an RSVP Ambassador – seasoned RSVP volunteers who help spread the word about volunteering to people ages 55+. He even served on the RSVP Advisory Council before the council became the Ambassadors!
Retired from military service himself, Harry gave his time to the Federal Way Senior Center and Hire America’s Heroes, helping connect veterans to employment, among other support. In addition to formal volunteer service, he was always ready to lend a hand where needed.
For the last several years, Harry gave rides from Auburn to Wallingford to other ambassadors who would otherwise not have been able to attend the quarterly Ambassador meetings. Harry’s volunteer service will have a lasting impact on those he supported and our community. Our hearts go out to Harry’s friends and family.
