Elder Abuse Awareness Day announced

| June 1, 2016

COSHOCTON – Together, let’s show our support in the worldwide effort to prevent elder abuse. Join the Coshocton County Senior Center, Lt. Dean Hettinger, and the Coshocton County Dept. of Job and Family Services in raising awareness in the community by wearing purple on Wednesday, June 15.

The color purple symbolizes the growing problem of elder abuse around the world. Anne Randles with the Coshocton County JFS Adult Protective Services will be at the senior center to talk about the different types of abuse, warning signs, and how to report abuse if you suspect it is happening to someone you know.

There will be a purple balloon launch after lunch and Healthy’s of Zanesville will be handing out free purple shakes. Also, the person wearing the most purple will win a Wal-Mart gift card.

Lunch will be served at noon and the balloon launch will be around 12:30-12:45 p.m.
