Volunteering on the Harbor

The 14th Volunteer Opportunities Fair was a huge success! Ninety-eight Harborites signed up to volunteer with the 35 participating organizations. Several people and organizations made this fair possible.

A big thank you goes to Greater Grays Harbor, Inc. sponsoring the fair. Pat Anderson and Spodey of Grays Harbor Radio broadcast live and interviewed all of the organizations’ representatives. Jodesha Broadcasting, Grays Harbor Radio, and The Daily World all helped get the word out about the fair ahead of time.

SouthShore Mall supplied the space, tables and chairs. Angela Endres created the posters and Sandie Carman made the table signs.

Grays Harbor has long been recognized for its caring quality. If you want to find out more about volunteering, you can pick up a Grays Harbor Volunteer Opportunities brochure that lists 101 local non-profit organizations and their contact information. These useful brochures were sponsored by the Stafford Creek Corrections Center’s offenders who are involved in several helpful community programs. The brochures are available at Timberland Libraries and Greater Grays Harbor.

You can also get the brochures at the Gregorian Group at the South Shore Mall. Gregory Johnson does an excellent job promoting volunteering at this great resource center; please stop by this great resource center and find out how you can make a difference in Grays Harbor.
