Sullivan Renaissance Multicultural Outreach | Feb. 26, 2018
Sullivan Renaissance will kick off an exciting season of grassroots community engagement with its first Volunteer Corps Orientation of 2016 on Wednesday, April 13 at 6:00 p.m. at the CVI Building at 165 Sullivan Avenue in Ferndale. Anyone interested in joining the Sullivan Renaissance volunteer program is invited to attend.
The Sullivan Renaissance Volunteer Corps is a group of volunteers who offer assistance to community beautification projects and Sullivan Renaissance initiatives. Corps members commit to participating in at least eight volunteer opportunities between April and mid-October. Opportunities include gardening, capacity building, teaching, outreach, program support and more. Volunteer Corps members receive regular opportunity notifications and sign-up to participate how, when, where and for as long as their schedules allow.
“I could have never envisioned my volunteer experience providing so much to me when I was looking to contribute to the community,” says returning Volunteer Corps member Anne-Louise Scandariato. “I signed up because I wanted to learn more about gardening, help beautify the community and meet new people. But the memories created are irreplaceable. The satisfaction in seeing others appreciate and value the volunteers’ efforts is priceless.”
The orientation is an opportunity to learn more about Sullivan Renaissance and ways to get involved. Pre-registration is requested and refreshments will be served. To register or for more information about volunteering, visit SullivanRenaissance.org or call Sullivan Renaissance at 845-295-2445. Event details can also be found on the Sullivan Renaissance Facebook and Twitter pages.
Sullivan Renaissance is a beautification and community development program principally funded by the Gerry Foundation.
