Nonprofit groups from Lincoln City to Yachats are being invited to take part in the Lincoln County Volunteer Fair, which will return to Newport’s Shilo Inn on Saturday, March 25.

The event aims to be a one-stop shop for people in search of volunteer opportunities in areas ranging from environmental conservation and homelessness to animal rights, youth education and many more.

Participating nonprofits will be available to share their missions and programs and describe volunteer opportunities.

“Volunteers are the glue that hold many non-profits together,” said event organizer Peggy O’Callaghan. “Volunteering has many benefits. It can increase job skills, provide networking opportunities, create new friendships and can provide a sense of purpose and accomplishment. Volunteering can transform your own life, as well as others, in so many positive ways.”

The event will run from 10 am to 2 pm, at the Shilo Inn, 536 SW Elizabeth Street.

For more information, call 541-574-5459.
