3rd Annual Napa Volunteer Fair to be held on June 29th
Napa, CA – Center for Volunteer & Nonprofit Leadership (CVNL) will produce the 3rd Annual Napa County Volunteer Fair on Saturday, June 29th, 2019.
This event will provide an opportunity for individuals to connect with local nonprofit organizations one-on-one. “We are seeing an increase in volunteer need from agencies, fueling our desire to continue this event,” said Elaine Tokolahi, Director of Volunteer Services at CVNL. “Whether you’re a student, retired, a business owner, or are simply curious about volunteer or board opportunities in Napa and want to meet like-minded people, this event is ideal for you.”
The Fair expects to showcase 40+ local nonprofits and government organizations representing diverse community impact areas — from housing, to education, to the arts, and more. Everyone is welcome to come stroll Fuller Park and learn about volunteer opportunities and general information about the amazing work nonprofits are doing in Napa County.
“This is a great chance for high school students who might have service projects to complete in the coming school year to connect with nonprofits,” said Jim Tomlinson, Manager of CVNL’s Napa office. “It’s also a fun way for citizens to learn more about causes they believe in and how they can help at the local level.”
Nonprofits interested in showcasing their organizations at the Fair can contact Jim, at 707.252.6222 or firstname.lastname@example.org, or sign up to participate online at: cvnl.org/event/3rd-annual-napa-volunteer-fair. Nonprofit participant fees are $25 and include a 10’x10’ booth space (tents, tables, chairs, and electricity not included).
