Taking time to volunteer has been a rewarding experience. But sometimes, I'm just not sure where to go next. For those of you who want to help out your community, but not sure where to start, check out a local volunteer fair.
A fair will take place from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on July 29 at the Oak Park Community Center at 14300 Oak Park Blvd Oak Park.
More than twenty local community organizations will be on hand to meet with each person to explain how they can volunteer with their organization. A few of the many organizations include The Michigan Humane Society, Alzheimer’s Association, American Red Cross, Forgotten Harvest and more.
Because I spend time volunteering and blogging, it's not likely that I will be able to make fairs, too. I'm lucky enough to have Katie Bontinen, calendar edtor at the OP, send me lots of ideas each week. But for those of you who don't have a personal helper, consider a fair.
This one looks like a fun one too. Personal services from Mary Kay, Avon and Party Lite Candles also will be at the free event.
Advance reservations are required. Call the City of Oak Park at 248-691-7577 to register, or if you have any questions.
