DOVER (May 11, 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 individuals interested in volunteering to hear from people involved with the organizations and to get an understanding of the impact that volunteers have," said Secretary Rita Landgraf of the Department of Health and Social Services, which oversees the State Office of Volunteerism. "We know that people who do volunteer get so much out of the experience. They see that their gifts and talents truly make a difference in people's lives."
Organizations that will be represented at the volunteer fair are 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.
