MANSFIELD, OH - The Retired Senior Volunteer Program or RSVP family of volunteers on Wednesday held a site station recognition event to honor the many organizations that support them.

The organizations' selfless commitment to the people and communities they serve exemplify the spirit of volunteering.

"RSVP is a government-sponsored organization to promote volunteering, it's designed for anyone 55 years of age and older to get hem out and get them active in the community again," says Jack Schumaker, volunteer coordinator for RSVP. "It was started in 1971 and we're in Richland and Ashland counties. We have about 40 organizations who use our volunteers and we have 280 volunteers.

"Our volunteer need is greater than our volunteers that are available, so I'm always looking for more volunteers," Schumaker added. "Any interest you may have, there's an organization that needs your help out there.".

The support these organizations provide to the RSVP volunteers throughout the year, allows the volunteers to pursue their passion for volunteerism and service to the people in Richland and Ashland counties.
