Leadership Lincoln County Project Press Release:
We are excited to share a networking opportunity for nonprofit organizations and potential volunteers in the community. As part of the Leadership Lincoln County experience, sponsored by the North Platte Chamber of Commerce, we have planned a Volunteer Fair as our small group project. As volunteers ourselves, we value and appreciate our volunteer experiences and hope to inspire others to consider volunteerism. We also understand the difficulty surrounding volunteer recruitment and wanted to provide an avenue to bring individuals with time and talent together with organizations needing volunteer assistance.
On Saturday, January 12, 2013 we are hosting a Volunteer Fair to be held in conjunction with sidewalk sales at Platte River Mall. We encourage nonprofits in the area to reserve a booth at the mall to meet potential volunteers and share information about their organization. The fair will take place from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. throughout the center mall. We are asking for a small donation of $10 to reserve a booth and help defray the cost of advertising and mailings.
We encourage students and community members to come to the mall to learn more about volunteer opportunities within the county. Some of the organizations with representatives participating include CASA, RSVP, Alzheimer’s Association, and the Women’s Resource Center, just to name a few. Opportunities abound and help is always needed. The fair is open to anyone looking to give a little and gain a lot.
We anticipate a favorable response and hope that the fair becomes an annual event. Please contact any of us below to reserve your booth or to answer your questions. Booth space is limited and reservations will be granted on a first come first served basis.
