ENCOURAGING VOLUNTEERS – Benton County Volunteer Program Director Chris Stone, left accepts a check of $1,000 from the Walmart Community Grant Program from Camden Walmart Manager Mike Seiber to help support the BCVP program and volunteers in Benton County.

The Benton County Volunteer Program (BCVP) is pleased to announce the receipt of a grant of $1,000 from Camden Walmart. Walmart distributes such funds through its Walmart Community Grant Program.

“The Benton County Volunteer Program extends a world of thanks to Camden Walmart for their belief in BCVP and for this charitable and generous award,” said BCVP Director Chris Stone. BCVP, formerly known as RSVP, is a non-profit organization whose mission is to recruit, support, and provide opportunities for volunteers within our community. The program offers volunteers areas of opportunity to assist and help in fulfilling the needs of other non-profits, individuals, and groups within the Benton County area.

Walmart, through its Community Grant Program, supports and invest in communities that help to make the community thrive. Every year Walmart and Sams Clubs provides grants to local area organizations that encourage volunteerism and also to programs that help strengthen community unity.

BCVP meets the last Wednesday of each month at 10 a.m. Meetings include a guest speaker and lunch and are open to anyone. BCVP is located at 122 W. Walnut St. in Camden and offers a variety of volunteer opportunities for anyone who would like to donate their time. For more information, contact Chris Stone at 731-584-6060.
