DOVER (Sept. 18, 2012) - The State Office of Volunteerism and the Kent County Public Library will host a volunteer fair from 1:30-3:30 p.m. Oct. 6 at the library.
"By sharing their gifts and talents, volunteers provide important services to Delawareans in need. The positive difference that volunteers make goes well beyond the specific service they provide; helping others binds us together and enhances our very sense of community," said Rita Landgraf, secretary of the Department of Health and Social Services. "Their example also can attract others to make a difference by finding their own volunteer opportunity."
Prospective volunteers of all ages are invited to learn about such opportunities as Concerned Citizens Organization, Dover Interfaith Mission for Housing, Big Brothers Big Sisters, National MS Society, Kids on the Block, the Delaware Agricultural Museum and many more.
The Kent County Library is at 497 S. Red Haven Lane in Dover.
For more information about the volunteer fair or to have your group included, contact Carrie Hart with the State Office of Volunteerism at (302) 857-5006. Deadline for reserving a table is Oct. 1.
Delaware Health and Social Services is committed to improving the quality of the lives of Delaware's citizens by promoting health and well-being, fostering self-sufficiency, and protecting vulnerable populations.
