input and hope she will continue to serve in volunteer

Review of 2011
As CNCS National
initiatives change, RSVP's goal is to concentrate on
quality volunteer opportunities that are high impact
rather than focus on number of volunteers and recorded
hours. However, we are still needing to have
qualified hour sheets that have both supervisor and
volunteer signatures and still need you to record
number of clients you serve. Thank you for your
hard work in 2011. Click here to
review our latest statistics.
Due to budget
adjustments, the Ohio County RSVP Office will be moved to
Marshall County located at 2200 Marshall Street, Suite 18,
Benwood WV 26031. You may reach RSVP
coordinators Linda Vidoni, Tonette Alward and Alina Hopkins
ASAP VISTA at 304.905.0673. Simpson United
Methodist Church RSVP ASAP will be combined with the Youth
