“Mount Vernon and Lisbon regularly break records for the number of individual volunteers and volunteer hours that are recorded here each and every year. All of us who work non-profit in these two towns are well aware of the work of volunteers in this community. We decided to get all of us in one room at one time to share our information with the entire community. Please join us and learn how you can make a difference in your own backyard.”

Joe Jennison, Director of the Mount Vernon-Lisbon Community Charitable Development Group

A volunteer form will be available at the event featuring listings of several area nonprofits. Guests will be asked to get the form signed by as many nonprofits as possible. Forms returned to the info desk inside the Volunteer Fair by the end of the fair will be entered into a drawing to win $50 worth of Community Cash good for any business in Mount Vernon or Lisbon.
