The Newport 60+ Senior Activity Center is pleased to announce that the First Annual Newport Community Volunteer Fair will be held on Tuesday June 16th from 4:30 to 6:00 pm and we’d love to have all community non-profits come down and take part.
The Volunteer Fair is open to all local non-profits. This is a great way to showcase your mission and programs for potential volunteers in the community and to explain how their time would be well spent with you. Volunteer fairs have attracted high school students looking for community service hours as well as adults looking to give back to the community. Due to space restrictions, participation will be limited to 35 organizations. Applications will be accepted on a first-come-first-served basis. Each organization will be allotted a 4-foot table space. Please be sure to note if you need to be near an electrical outlet.
Organizations are welcome to bring posters, pictures, brochures, demonstrations, laptops or any other promotional information. (The 60+ Activity Center has wireless internet access if you need it.) Don’t forget to bring a sign-up sheet for prospective volunteers! If you’d like to participate, please return the application to the 60+ Center. We would like to award a good number of door prizes, so please bring an appropriate item to donate.
Please plan to be at the 60+ no earlier than 3:30 pm and no later than 4:00 pm to set up your table. Bring information on your volunteer opportunities as well as business cards, postcards, bookmarks or brochures to hand out to people who come to the event. Demonstrations and posters are welcome. The 60+ has wireless internet access if needed. Cancellations MUST be received by June 8th 2015, unless there is an emergency. Participation is limited to 35 non-profit organizations. Priority will be given to Newport based organizations. Applications will be accepted on a first come, first serve basis. Please return form to: 60+ Activity Center 20 SE 2nd St. Newport, OR 97365.
