Single Volunteers of the Western
Reserve, based in Summit County, Ohio, was a group loosely
affiliated with the national Single Volunteers based in Washington
DC. (Visit their website to learn more about this organization at
www.singlevolunteers.org.) The concept of single people joining
together to serve the community and mingle with other singles gained
momentum both within the non-profit sector as a source of
volunteers, but also among singles as a place to meet other
community-minded singles and to make new friends.
SVWR opened this chapter in 2000 after being a part of the Single
Volunteers of Northeast Ohio (www.svohio.org).
The group was formed with approximately 15 dedicated individuals and
grew over the years to include nearly 250 members. The past
leadership of SVWR wishes to express their thanks to the many people
involved with us over the past decade of service to our local
The Summit County based group disbanded as of October 1, 2009.
