[FERNDALE] – Individuals interested in making a difference in Sullivan County are invited to a “Volunteer Open House” on Wednesday, February 4 at 7:00 p.m. in the CVI Building at 165 Sullivan Avenue in Ferndale.
The evening offers an opportunity to learn details about the variety of ways volunteers can share their skills: hands-on gardening and beautification, teaching, outreach, publicity and fundraising – both as part of the Sullivan Renaissance Volunteer Corps and directly in local communities throughout Sullivan County.
New for this year through the Renaissance En Español program, bilingual individuals are encouraged to join the Volunteer Corps to provide translation assistance to help remove the language barrier.
The open house will offer the opportunity to meet Volunteer Corps members as well as 2015 Sullivan Renaissance grant recipients already selected through an early admission process. This is a chance to learn firsthand what individuals are doing to make a difference in their communities and how to assist them.
“Bring a friend, it’s going to be a great evening for networking,” said Volunteer Coordinator Cara Kowalski, “I know it’s still cold outside, but spring is around the corner and we are very excited about our 15th season.”
Information about new aspects of the 2015 Volunteer Corps program, an overview of new initiatives and resources for community volunteers, and various gardening trainings will also be presented.
Pre-registration is requested. Refreshments will be served. Everyone attending will be entered in a door prize raffle.
To register, visit SullivanRenaissance.org or call the Sullivan Renaissance office at 845-295-2445. Event details can also be found on the Sullivan Renaissance Facebook and Twitter pages.
Renaissance is a beautification and community development program principally
funded by the Gerry Foundation.
