Volunteer Fair Invites Not-For-Profit Organizations

NEWBURGH – Washington’s Headquarters State Historic Site is holding the 2024 Newburgh Volunteer Fair on our grounds on May 11th. They are looking for not-for-profit organizations of all kinds to participate. This event is organized by the historic site in partnership with the Newburgh Free Library.

Volunteers are a vital part of not-for-profit organizations. The Newburgh Volunteer Fair provides local not-for profit groups the opportunity to staff a table to raise awareness within the community of the important work that they do, network with other community organizations, and recruit would-be volunteers.

All types of not-for-profit organizations are invited to attend the Fair. Free admission will be offered to the Museum and to Washington’s Headquarters’ Hasbrouck house tours on May 11th, courtesy of the Friends of the State Historic Sites of the Hudson Highlands, encouraging visitors to experience the important role Newburgh played during the War of Independence.

Not-for-profit organizations can receive an application for your organization to participate. The application is available at the Washington Headquarter’s website to download.

There will also be a number for wonderful other happenings in Newburgh on May 11th at part of “Spring Into Downtown Newburgh”. People are encouraged to patronize nearby shops and restaurants, visit the Newburgh Farmers’ Market, and more.

The hope is that organizations will take advantage of this opportunity to promote their work, recruit new volunteers, and network with other community organizations trying to make a difference in Newburgh. Let’s show everyone how much we support our community, and how many opportunities there are to help keep Newburgh strong!

This event is weather permitting. Call 845-562-1195 for more information.
