Friday, January 11, 2013

FREDERICK, Md.—Representatives from 30 local nonprofit and service organizations will be at Hood College to recruit volunteers and acquaint students, faculty staff and Frederick community members with services offered by their organizations.

The annual community service fair, which will be held January 30 from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. in the Commons Room in the college’s Whitaker Campus Center, will offer a forum for Hood and local community members to meet with organization representatives to learn about volunteer and internship opportunities and community services available in the Frederick area. Refreshments will be served.

On hand will be local organizations that focus on diverse issues, including animal welfare; at-risk youth and other populations; health care; performing and other cultural arts; domestic violence prevention; legal affairs; historic preservation; fire and rescue; food and housing for the disadvantaged; literacy; and mental health crisis services.
