Sullivan Renaissance will launch an exciting season of grassroots community engagement with a Volunteer Corps Orientation on Wednesday, May 11 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, education, 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.
“Volunteering gives me a chance to share what I enjoy with others and to make new friends with similar interests,” says returning Volunteer Corps member Melinda Cormier. “It helps me see the county where I grew up in a new way…and I enjoy the chance to give back in a really fun way!”
Volunteer Corps orientations are scheduled throughout the spring and summer. 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.
