Washington’s Headquarters hosts annual Volunteer Fair

NEWBURGH - More than thirty community organizations that rely upon volunteers were in attendance at the third annual Newburgh Volunteer Fair, Saturday, May 4, 2013 at Washington’s Headquarters State Historic. Organizations like Meals-on-Wheels, St. Luke’s Hospital and Newburgh’s Historical Society, to name just a few, participated in the event. These organizations that took part assist the greater Newburgh area and its community residents, offer help and opportunities, and show their pride in Newburgh.

Washington’s Headquarters, the Newburgh Free Library and Safe Harbors of the Hudson were the coordinators of this event for the third year. They realize that a program of this nature focuses on raising awareness of the scope of needs in the Newburgh community and hones in on how individuals who volunteer can help in meeting those needs.

The superb weather and park setting helped encourage individuals to sign up to volunteer with various organizations. With the economy in a precarious state, these organizations greatly rely upon the steadying hand volunteers offer in assisting organizations to achieve their goals.

Elyse B. Goldberg, Historic Site Manager, said, "This Fair is an opportunity to bring together people who care with the many and varied ways to enrich and strengthen this community. Obviously, by today’s turnout, Newburgh has a lot of positive people, and hope for a greater future."
