United Way hosting open house

| July 30, 2014

COSHOCTON – The United Way of Coshocton County is celebrating its move with an open house on Friday, Aug. 8. There will be a ribbon cutting at 2 p.m. and the public is welcome and encouraged to come.

Next year, in 2015, the United Way of Coshocton County will be celebrating its 75th anniversary of serving Coshocton.

Currently there are 17 local individuals who sit on the board of control and govern the non-profit. The mission of the United Way of Coshocton is uniting neighbors and resources to positively impact lives in Coshocton. They do this by not only funding 19 local agencies, but by supporting community impact initiatives through grant dollars. The newest of these is the 2-1-1 call system that is now available to all Coshocton residents. It is an information and referral phone number that can be called 24 hours a day, 365 days a year to get connected to services available here in the county.

The United Way of Coshocton is getting ready to kick off the 2014-2015 campaign at Lake Park pavilion with the 10th annual Taste of Coshocton. Eighteen area restaurants will be handing out samples of the food they serve. Tickets are available at the United Way office at 402 Main St. The Corporate Sponsor this year is Jones Metal and the goal is $380,000.
