St. John's United Church, in cooperation with the United Way, is pleased to be hosting a Volunteer Fair in its Georgetown location at 11 Guelph St. on Saturday, September 30 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. This event is in response to a community survey sent out in the spring, where agencies said the way St. John's could most help would be to find more volunteers. In another community survey, many individuals said they would like to volunteer some time but didn't know with which agency to go to or even what agencies needed volunteers. So, the idea of the Volunteer Fair was born-- to provide local agencies with an opportunity to showcase their operation and needs, and to provide a setting which would make it easy for interested individuals to learn about how they could help others. Special invitations have been circulated to the four area high schools to encourage students to attend the fair and choose where they'd like to spend their 40 volunteer hours. All ages are welcome to come, chat with people and enjoy some light refreshments. People helping people will be a recipe for building a happy and thriving community. Hopefully, this will become an annual event. Participants at the Volunteer Fair include: Big Brothers, Big Sisters Cancer Assistance Services of Halton Hills (CAS-hh) Canadian Mental Health Association Georgetown Bread Basket Georgetown Hospital Volunteers Girl Guides, Girls Inc. Grace House Habitat For Humanity Halton Community Legal Services Halton Hills Community Support and Information (now Links2Care) Halton Hills Speech Centre Halton Women's Place Literacy North Halton North Halton Distress Centre Peel HIV/AIDS Network POSSE (Peer Outreach Support Services and Education) P.O.W.E.R Red Cross Scouts Transitions for Youth United Way VON Halton
