A New Look for Elderly United
Reflecting maturity in a vital community organization.
Since 1968, Elderly United has existed in Springfield, Ohio to meet the needs of citizens age 55 and older. This year, a new name, Elderly United Senior Services, has been introduced along with an updated logo. The new look reflects the diversity of ages, needs, and services available to help people in the second half of life to be active, involved and independent.
The Springfield Foundation has a special relationship with Elderly United Senior Services of Clark County. Through the generosity of donors Sig and Ilse Sander, the Foundation provides funding to Elderly United for its annual Holiday Dinner for Springfield residents. Elderly United is an important resource for Clark County, managing more than 30 different programs that enhance the lives of our older citizens, and help them live independently as long as they are able.
An important outreach to the community is the RSVP (Retired & Senior Volunteer Program) of Clark County, administered by Norma Knowlton of Elderly United. RSVP provides volunteer placements for seniors who wish to serve our residents in programs such as Meals on Wheels, Income Tax filing, school tutoring, or in a great variety of other service opportunities. Most volunteers are retirees who have a desire to give their time to others in the community. RSVP provides an opportunity for many to explore new activities, or return to an earlier interest that they put aside for work and family obligations. RSVP helps to keep our retirees active in vital roles in our community.
