Up to 50 non-profit agencies will share volunteer opportunities for individuals, families and civic groups at the Family Resource Center’s 11th annual Eastside Volunteer Fair. The fair takes place on May 3, the final day of National Volunteer Week, from 11 a.m.-4 p.m. at Crossroads, the shopping center at Northeast 8th Street and 156th Avenue in Bellevue.

In addition to learning ways to “weave themselves into the community,” participants will enjoy music and other fun activities.

A display and raffle of two quilts is new this year. Proceeds from the $5 tickets will support the work of Family Resource Center to ensure all families are able to find the help they need, when they need it.

The Eastside Volunteer Fair is designed to provide a “one-stop” opportunity for the community to identify volunteer opportunities in which they would like to participate. Participants learn which agency is a fit for their interests, where their civic club might make an impact, which can welcome a classroom or a troop, and very simply, “who is doing what out there.”

The center’s Eastside Volunteer Fair is designed to increase one of the major resources used by agencies: volunteers. It also serves as a means to focus attention on the multiple needs of non-profits and the many ways for visitors to become engaged through service and support opportunities.

Sponsors for the fair include Alexander, Morford & Woo; Davis Wright Tremaine; Falco Sult & Company, PS; McEachern Family Foundation; Peterson Sullivan LLC; and PLC Insurance, with in-kind contributions from Crossroads Bellevue; Bellevue Reporter/Reporter Newspapers; DTMarshall and the City of Bellevue Cultural Diversity Program.

The non-profit Family Resource Center is located at 16225 NE 87th Street in Redmond. Over 40,000 Eastsiders receive assistance each year from the 18 agencies operating on the center’s unique human service campus. For information, call (425) 869-6699 or visit www.familyresourcecenter.org.
