DOVER (March 13, 2015) - The State Office of Volunteerism and the Kent County Public Library will host a volunteer fair from 2-4 p.m. May 16 at the library for prospective volunteers of all ages to learn about more than 20 organizations in Kent County.
"This is a great opportunity for people to see how their personal interests and passions might match up with the volunteer roles that these organizations have to offer," said Secretary Rita Landgraf of the Department of Health and Social Services, which oversees the State Office of Volunteerism. "When people share their gifts and lend a hand to others in need, our communities are made even stronger."
Organizations that will be represented at the volunteer fair include the American Cancer Society, Habitat for Humanity, national Capital Therapy Dogs, Creative Mentoring, Heartland Hospice, 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 organizations to reserve a table is May 5.
