United Way of Lee, Hendry, Glades and Okeechobee is sponsoring a Volunteer Far on Saturday, February 1 at the Lakes Regional Library, 15290 Bass Road in Fort Myers. The United Way Volunteer Center invites the public to learn how to enrich your life through helping others.
Nineteen local agencies will have tables at the Volunteer Fair so visitors can explore what type of activity each agency has to offer to volunteers. Enrich your life by offering your skills and experience to a local non-profit agency, and choose the one that is the perfect fit for you. This is a great opportunity for students who are required to do public service hours for school, retired persons to expand their horizons, and families to find volunteer projects to do together. There is no charge for the event. A few examples of potential volunteer positions or projects include the following:
Food prep, serving meals, food pantries, special events, tutoring/mentoring, administrative office assistance, animal socialization, pet therapy, elder support, and much more.
The United Way Volunteer Center connects individuals and companies to volunteer opportunities throughout our community. You can reach the United Way Volunteer Center by calling (239) 433-7567, or by visiting the United Way website at www.UnitedWayLee.org/
