“Our goal was to foster the spirit of volunteerism in Brooklyn, and thanks to the hard work of all the sponsors, we achieved that goal,” said Millman. “The organizations represented at this fair serve the unique needs of our community, and they depend on the service of volunteers. I encourage all of my constituents to devote a portion of their free time to volunteering.”
The Community Volunteer Fair was an invaluable opportunity for potential volunteers to find out where and how they can help, whether they’re a high school student, a retired person, or someone who wants to sharpen skills or develop new ones. Admission to the event was free and directories with information about the participating organizations were provided.
