This Seniors Service Division of BHHS C. Dan Joyner REALTORS sponsored event will be held September 6, from 3-5 p.m at the Woodlands at Furman, 1500 Trailhead Court, Greenville, SC 29617.
This event is free and no RSVP is required.
Once you match with a volunteer program, they’ll provide you with free training and continual education to make sure you want to stay and volunteer with them.
Event organizers say volunteers are the reason so many of these non-profits are able to make a difference here in the Upstate and hopefully today’s fair will allow people to see how many opportunities there are to help out.
