United Way volunteer fair on tap at library

NASHUA – There are always opportunities for those looking to volunteer, and with summer vacation just around the corner, there are even more choices for anyone wanting to help.

The United Way of Greater Nashua will conduct a volunteer fair from 5:30-7 p.m. June 6 at the Nashua Public Library, 2 Court St. This will give attendees a chance to talk to representatives of organizations, such as the American Red Cross, the Greater Nashua YMCA, Grow Nashua, Marguerite’s Place, the High Hopes Foundation and Nashua Community Emergency Response among many more about volunteer opportunities during the summer, as well as projects that are taking place for longer periods of time.

“It’s a chance for teens and adults looking for an opportunity to volunteer to explore a number of opportunities all in the same place at the same time,” library Outreach Coordinator Carol Eyman said.

With opportunities to work in programs during the summer or throughout the year, Eyman said any member of the community looking to volunteer would be able to find their niche, whether it would be driving Meals on Wheels trucks for St. Joseph Community

Services, working as a fitness instructor at the YMCA, doing taxes through AARP, or helping with candidate forums during election season with the Women’s League of Voters.

“With this number of agencies participating, anyone can find their niche. There will be some group that needs help with something,” Eyman added.

The event is free and open to the public. By participating in the event and visiting different booths, attendees will have the opportunity to enter raffles. Organizers will be giving away gift cards, T-shirts, books and other prizes.

Eyman said those who attend the event are encouraged to visit all organizations to better understand all the opportunities presented throughout the community.
