Institute for Nonprofit Leadership and Management at SUNY Orange Seeks
To Unite Volunteers with Organizations in Need

MIDDLETOWN, N.Y. – Many organizations in the Hudson Valley need volunteers to make their events and programs successful, and there are folks in the region who have a desire to donate their time in support of worthwhile causes. The hope of Institute for Nonprofit Leadership and Management at SUNY Orange is that its upcoming Volunteer Fair, slated from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Oct. 11 at the Galleria Mall in Middletown, can unite potential volunteers with those organizations in need.

A diverse grouping of more than 40 community service organizations from throughout the Hudson Valley has agreed to staff booths where folks can meet representatives and learn more about their respective organizations. Information regarding each organization’s focus area will be available, while representatives will also present the areas in which they are most in need of assistance.

On hand will be a variety of community service agencies, to include literacy programs, historical societies, local museums, children’s programs and others.

While appealing to a broad spectrum of citizens, the Volunteer Fair is a convenient way for senior citizens to receive information about how they can become involved. While learning about these volunteer opportunities, people can determine particular areas of interest as they pursue avenues that will boost their commitments to helping others and serving the community.

For further information contact Sandra Röding, coordinator of the Institute for Nonprofit Leadership and Management at SUNY Orange, at 341-4874 or email, sroding@sunyorange.edu.
