The public is invited to a Volunteer Fair and Barbecue from 5 to 7 p.m. Thursday at the Randall Girl Scout Cabin in Light Park in Liberal. Free grilled pork burgers, chips, cookies and drinks will be available to all participants, thanks to Seaboard Foods.
“This is a great opportunity for individuals who are interested in helping out their community to find out about the options for volunteering with 17 local non-profit organizations,” said Kay Burtzloff, director of the Seward County United Way.
The volunteer fair is being sponsored by the Girl Scouts of Kansas Heartland, Big Brothers Big Sisters, and the local United Way as well as Seaboard Foods’ generous food contribution.
“Every participant who gets their bingo card filled by going to all the booths will be put in a drawing for a $25 Chamber Gift Certificate and we’ve got 10 of them to give away thanks to an anonymous donor,” Burtzloff said.
Organizations that will be represented at the Volunteer Fair will include the Big Brothers Big Sisters, Girl Scouts, Boy Scouts, 4-H/K-State Extension, Seward County Health Department, Original Town of Liberal Revitalization, USD 480 After School Programs, Senior Citizens Center, Kids Inc., Angels for Animals, American Red Cross, Stepping Stone (Homeless) Shelter, Mosaic, Mexican-American Ministries, Liberal Area Rape Crisis and Domestic Violence Center, Baker Arts Center and the Seward County United Way.
