 Gurnee's Volunteer Fair Looks to Help Local Organizations Find Volunteers

GURNEE, IL – The Village of Gurnee will be hosting a volunteer fair on Tuesday, December 18th from 4:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at Village Hall (325 North O’Plaine Road, Gurnee, IL 60031). The volunteer fair will be an opportunity for non-profit organizations, volunteer groups, and clubs serving Lake County to match with potential volunteers.
 
Gurnee Mayor Kristina Kovarik recognized the need for a volunteer fair after hearing from residents wanting to become more involved in the community, and also from organizations struggling to find volunteers. “There appears to be a disconnect between the wonderful organizations serving our community and the residents looking for ways they could help others” said Mayor Kovarik.
 
Registration is only required for organizations looking to participate. Interested volunteers are encouraged to attend and learn more about organizations serving Lake County, with no obligation to join. The fair is open to all ages.
 
Organizations included in the 2018 Volunteer Fair are:

Waukegan to College
Love Inc. Lake County
Gurnee Exchange Club / Chamber of Commerce
Gurnee District 56 Destination Imagination
