Lewisboro Community Volunteer Fair

Saturday, March 3, 11:00 am to 2:00 pm

Give back to your Community! This annual event pairs would-be volunteers with local agencies in need of help. Please take the time to stop by and speak with representatives of local groups who will have tables at the Library with information on their services and volunteer needs. This year we’ve added “Hands-on” stations for all ages where people can drop in and make much-needed items to donate to non-profits, such as dog toys for Guiding Eyes for the Blind and also paint uplifting messages on rocks to distribute throughout Lewisboro for our "Kindness Rocks" program. To register your agency, contact Liz Gabriele at 875-9004. There is no fee for participation.
