Macomb Community Action Office of Senior Services to host 2nd annual National Day of Service Volunteer Recruitment Fair
As a component of the National Day of Service and in honor of the victims of 9/11, the Macomb Community Action Office of Senior Services will host their second annual Volunteer Recruitment Fair on Wednesday, September 11. The event is free to the public and will be held from 10 a.m. – 1:30 p.m. at the Macomb Intermediate School District, 44001 Garfield Rd, Clinton Township. Light refreshments will be served.
The volunteer recruitment fair is designed to bring together local organizations and nonprofits looking to share their volunteering opportunities with individuals, groups and businesses that want to give back to the community.
“We're excited to offer this event for potential volunteers to come out and learn about the wide variety of volunteer opportunities available in Macomb County,” said Nicole Urban, program manager for the Office of Senior Services. “Volunteering in itself is very rewarding and fulfilling.”
“Volunteers are often a valued asset and contributor to the success of many programs and organizations in Macomb County, including the Meals on Wheels program. These special individuals are truly appreciated,” added Michelle Davidson, volunteer coordinator for Macomb Community Action.
September 11 was designated a National Day of Service by Congress in 2009. The Corporation for National and Community Service leads the annual event, working with 911Day.org and hundreds of businesses, nonprofit groups, faith-based organizations and schools nationwide to encourage residents to volunteer starting the weekend before September 11.
