Community Volunteer Fair offers chance to connect, serve with local organizations

ST. GEORGE — Please join us at the 4th annual Community Volunteer Fair on Oct. 7 from 4-7 p.m. at the Dixie State University Gardner Ballroom.

Dixie State University Community Engagement Learning and JustServe are partnering with over 40 local agencies and organizations and will be on-site to share how you can strengthen our community and get connected through volunteering for a cause you are passionate about.

The Community Volunteer Fair is free and open to the public. Organizations represented will be there with whom you can talk to about their volunteer needs. We look forward to visiting with you at the fair.

This is a wonderful opportunity for members of our communities to visit with these organizations and learn first hand of their needs. We look forward to seeing you there.
