Binghamton, NY (WBNG Binghamton) An Open House for volunteers could mean a greater and better Broome County.

Two organizations, the Retired Senior Volunteer Program (R.S.V.P.) and the Binghamton Regional Sustainability Coalition (B.S.R.C.) have one goal in mind: making a difference.

By having an open house for interested volunteers, the organizations are hoping to get the help they need.

One project that they are working on is the Green Jobs, Green New York program which promotes energy efficiency.

Volunteers of all ages are invited to help assist, especially those who have available time and experience.

"We're always looking for board members, so people with planning skills, people with leadership skills, people with finance and accounting skills," said David Currie, B.R.S.C. director.

Currie also said that the people who registered want to find themselves useful.

For additional information on how to help, contact R.S.V.P. at 797-6188 or call B.R.S.C. at 205-8732.
