The fair is held in January each year to help you fulfill your resolutions to volunteer more!

A wide variety of local nonprofits will be on-hand so residents can learn more about all the different volunteering options available in our community. So whether you enjoy working with children or seniors indoors or outdoors, hands-on activities, or a collaborative think-tank atmosphere, there is a volunteer opportunity for you right here in our community.
