The second annual Volunteer Fair is scheduled for October 2nd, 2018, from 10:00 am until 6:00 pm. This year’s event will be held at the Carnegie Center of the Port Huron Museum, one of nearly twenty participating organizations featured. The format is open-house style, attendance is free, and people of all ages who are interested in learning about various nonprofits’ volunteer needs are welcome to attend.
A wide variety of charities will be represented, including area hospitals, St. Clair County Community Mental Health, Visiting Nurse Association and Blue Water Hospice, Blue Water Safe Horizons, Harbor Impact Ministries, Leader Dogs for the Blind, the YMCA, and many others.
“Whatever your passion, you can find a place to volunteer,” said Tracy Willard, the Executive Director of Hunter Hospitality House, an agency participating in the event. “It’s the perfect place to start if you’ve been thinking about volunteering, but don’t know where you’d like to do it. Students who need service hours for National Honor Society and other groups would also benefit from attending.”

Volunteering has been shown to be good for your health—both physically, and mentally. Colleen Burrum, the Volunteer Coordinator of Blue Water Safe Horizons and head of the Volunteer Fair planning committee, said of volunteering, “We feel encouraged when we encourage others.”
Museum Director Margaret Aiken, who is on the planning committee for the Volunteer Fair, added,“Volunteers are critical to the operations of all non-profits. Please come by and check out the exhibits, free of charge, at the Port Huron Museum.”
The Carnegie Center of the Port Huron Museum is at 1115 6 th Street. Those attending the Volunteer Fair are asked to enter through the front door.
