Boomers, retirees and older adults of all ages seeking flexible, meaningful volunteer opportunities are invited to the Venture into Volunteering fair, on Wednesday, May 7 from 10 a.m. to noon at the Herndon Senior Center, 873 Grace Street, Herndon, Va.
Representatives from 25 nonprofit organizations including Reston Interfaith, the Northern Virginia Long-Term Care Ombudsman program, and the American Red Cross together with Fairfax County agencies will discuss their volunteer opportunities and benefits.
Catherine M. Hudgins, Fairfax County Board of Supervisors representing the Hunter Mill District, will welcome the crowd. Refreshments and a prize drawing will be offered.
The fair is sponsored by the Fairfax County Department of Family Services’ Fairfax Area Agency on Aging, the Fairfax County Public Library, Volunteer Fairfax, The Campagna Center’s Retired and Senior Volunteer Program and the Fairfax County Public Library Foundation, Inc. The fair is the third of its kind in Fairfax County.
