Volunteer Spotlights!

Mike Colburn


Mike is a Vietnam Veteran dog handler and a 4 year volunteer of RSVP.
He volunteers every Tuesday for Tool Time Tuesdays, a program that offers FREE labor to the seniors and disabled of Otsego County for small in-home honey do's.

Mike enjoys fishing, working in his home workshop and motorcycling when he is not volunteering his time in the community.

When asked what he enjoyed most about volunteering, Mike said "My favorite part is working with the local people."

Here's to you Mike! And all of your hard work to help make our community, and country, a better place.

Sue Fuelling

Sue has been graciously volunteering her time with RSVP for a decade now!
She is a volunteer and supporter of Otsego County's Medical Transportation program, The Historical Society and The Conservation District.

Sue enjoys reading, singing in choir and watching tv when she isn't busy with her volunteer work.

When asked what she enjoyed most while volunteering, Sue said "Medical transports and working in the museum. Meeting new people is great too!"

Thank you Sue for all you do for us at United Way/RSVP.
We can't appreciate you enough!!

Bob Sawyer

Bob is a Vietnam Veteran who has been generously volunteering his time with RSVP for nearly 14 years.
Bob is a crucial part of both the TACKLE van and medical transports as a driver and a substitute for both programs.
He has traveled thousands of miles all over the state of Michigan transporting Otsego County residents to and from doctors appointments.

We want to send a huge heart filled THANK YOU to you Bob for all you do for us at United Way/RSVP.

Bob Wright

Bob has been dedicated to volunteering for 8 years now. He is the Chairperson for Otsego County Food Pantry as well as the TEFAP Site Coordinator.

When he is not found in the food pantry, Bob enjoys spending time with his bride, their chihuahua and camping.

When asked about his volunteer work Bob answered with "I enjoy giving back to our community. Doing the right thing, and just being nice."

And nice he is! Since the start of Covid-19, Bob has yet to slow down with his efforts to keep the families of Otsego County well fed!

Thank you for all you do for our community Bob. We are blessed to work with you.

Mike Switalski

Mike has been volunteering his valuable time with us for 5 years now and is a crucial asset to Otsego County Food Pantry.

Mike delivers food to Vanderbilt, fixes things around The United Way building, takes medical transports, helps set up and distribute TEFAP among many many other things.

Mike said "the people" are what makes his many volunteer hours valuable to him.

From the people you love to help Mike, we cannot thank you enough for all your hard work and dedication to Otsego County!

Chris Cz

Chris has been graciously volunteering her time with us for over 11 years!

If you know Chris, you know her dedication to The Refuge working as the Housing Navigator keeping roofs over the heads of Otsego County residents.

When we asked Chris what she enjoyed most in her volunteer work she stated "Being able to give back to the community and making great friends."

When Chris has some down time (which isn't often) she spends her time gardening, taking field trips to search for Michigan waterfalls and hiking.

We cannot thank you enough for all you do for Otsego County Chris. You are truly one of a kind and we are so grateful to work along side of you!
