The Lincoln County Volunteer Fair will return to Newport Recreation Center on Saturday, March 10, giving people the chance to visit with local non-profits and learn about their organizations.
Volunteer opportunities on offer span a range of work and issue areas, such as environmental conservation, homelessness, animal rights, elderly and disabilities, poverty, youth education and many more.
“Volunteers are the glue that hold many non-profits together” said 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 Newport Recreation Center, 225 SE Avery Street.
