CINCINNATI - On Thursday, September 13, 2012, The Standard’s Volunteer Expo returns to Fountain Square. Now in its second year, the Expo will feature more than 40 non-profits in a single location. Representatives from a diverse range of community-based organizations will be on hand to showcase their volunteer and advocacy opportunities, while attendees can find service and donation opportunities that match their skills and interests – ranging from one-time projects to longer-term commitments.
With more than 40 participating non-profits, the 2012 Volunteer Expo will be one of the largest volunteer expos in Ohio. To accommodate the growing interest from non-profits and the public, this special event at Cincinnati’s Fountain Square is free and open to the public.
“Volunteers enable non-profit organizations to provide critical programs and services that may otherwise have to be reduced or eliminated,” said Greg Ness, chairman, president and CEO of The Standard. “The Standard has a long-standing tradition of supporting the communities in which we work and live. The Volunteer Expo creates new opportunities for involvement and support at every level.”
The 2012 Volunteer Expo takes place Thursday, Sept. 13, 2012, from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. in Fountain Square, located at the intersection of Fifth and Vine Streets in downtown Cincinnati. The event is open to the public and free of charge.
