A Monroe County municipality gives local residents the chance to find more volunteer opportunities.
Middles Smithfield Township is holding a "Volunteer Fair" on Saturday. It will take place at Echo Lake Park from noon to 4:00 p.m.. 20 volunteer based organizations like Meals On Wheels, Monroe Animal League and Pennsylvania Mountain Rescue will be at the event in the hopes of gaining new volunteers.
"They all depend on volunteers to continue operating. They're non-profit organizations, they're not here for... they're not for profit businesses. They need people to sign up to help out," Chris Rain, Parks and Recreation Coordinator, said.
The "Volunteer Fair" will coincide with the "Touch a Truck" event. Local emergency vehicles and the townships biggest and coolest road equipment will be on display for those in attendance. A Lehigh Valley Health Network MedEvac helicopter is also expected to stop in.
