Red Hook residents will get a chance for an up-close look at area non-profit organizations during the third annual Volunteer Fair to be held Mon., Sept. 23, at Bard College.
Several organizations have already signed up, but planners are still welcoming more non-profit organizations. So far, participants include the Red Hook Public Library, the Tivoli Free Library, Ulster County Habitat for Humanity, and Dutchess County Habitat for Humanity. To register, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 845-758-7453 by Aug. 1.
“We continue to be amazed by the hundreds of people who come out to get involved,” said Erin Cannan, Associate Director for the Bard Center for Civic Engagement. “What an opportunity for potential volunteers, ranging from 8th graders to Bard college students to senior citizens, seeking volunteer opportunities. The Fair offers a huge variety of local resources and reminds us of how important it is to support our local agencies.”
The Volunteer Fair is a collaborative venture by Bard College, the Red Hook Chamber of Commerce, the Red Hook Public Library and the Red Hook Central School District. It will be held in the Multi-Purpose Room of the Bertelsmann Campus Center from 5pm to 7pm. There will also be a local farmers’ market showcasing Hudson Valley farms, including Bard’s own farm.
