United Way spotlights CSVP as agency of the month

| October 28, 2014

RSVP volunteers 001COSHOCTON – The United Way of Coshocton County would like to highlight the Coshocton Senior Volunteer Program as its October agency the month.

Formerly called RSVP (Retired Senior Volunteer Program), CSVP has been providing volunteer opportunities in the community since 1972 when the program began with just a few senior citizens who wished to share their wisdom, knowledge and time with those in need.

“CSVP currently has about 20 worksites in Coshocton County where volunteers who have developed skills throughout their working lives can be utilized to continue benefitting the community,” said Program Coordinator Pat Shryock. “Our future goals are to increase in numbers and add more worksites as needed.”

CSVP has about 135 members. Although primarily targeted at providing volunteer opportunities for those 60 years old and over, Shryock said they are also able to serve those younger than 60 through the program because of funding from the United Way.

The agency is currently looking for volunteers to fill a variety of volunteering opportunities including office receptionists, answering telephones and activity assistants in local nursing homes.

For more information about the agency, contact Shryock at 622-4852.
