Conscience Fair - A huge success in Wilmington, NC

The Wilmington Star News sponsored a fair at the Cape Fear Community College. This was a volunteer fair for people to attend and find out about volunteer opportunities in the area. It was a unique opportunity to find out what communities groups do and what kinds of volunteer they need - all in one location, at one time. Some of the participants included the Aquarium at Fort Fisher, Habitat for Humanity, Wrightsville Beach Museum, Dreamz - Art for the Young. If you were thinking about volunteering in the community over 50 groups were represented here and you could find out what would be a good fit for you. Over 200 people attended. The Star News wants to make this huge next year and wants to attract over 500 people. Every community could use volunteers and this is a good way to find out who's looking for who!!
