The Elgin Volunteer Coordinator Network (EVCN) will host the fourth annual VolunteerPalooza on Saturday, September 30 at the Gail Borden Public Library in the Meadows Community Room, located at 270 N. Grove Ave. The free volunteer fair runs from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
People of all ages are invited to attend and learn about ways to volunteer in the community. Dozens of local organizations, including social service agencies, educational institutions, civic groups and service clubs will be available to help people find the right volunteer opportunity to suit their interests.
The Elgin Volunteer Coordinator Network is a networking group made up of volunteer coordinators from area agencies, schools and other nonprofit organizations. The EVCN works to promote and aid volunteer efforts in the community, which helps support the City of Elgin’s membership as aCities of Service. Organizations interested in having a table at VolunteerPalooza must register online in advance. Registration is free; however, space is limited.
