This annual event — now in its 16th year — draws about 80 local non-profit organizations who need volunteers to support the programs and services that make our community a better place to live.  They are looking forward to meeting and talking with new volunteers face-to-face and providing all the information they need to find their volunteering ‘home’.

For volunteers, this event represents a one-of-a-kind opportunity to learn about each organization, and how their personal involvement can make a difference in our community.  One stop, with all the answers they need to make their choice (Or choices!) on where they will give of their time.

At the Fair, we all come together to help make Kelowna a great place to live!
