Would you like to learn more about not-for-profit organizations and charities? Do you want to discover how volunteering can make a difference in your community? Come see how you can help Long Island not-for-profit organizations and enrich your life at the same time.

Farmingdale State College will host the Long Island Volunteer Fair on Thursday, October 4, from 10 a.m. - 2 p.m. in Roosevelt Hall. Sponsored by OSI Pharmaceuticals, t he Fair is designed to bring members of the community and area not-for-profit agencies together. There is no question that volunteering is not only an essential part of a well-rounded education, but also an important factor in developing into a positive member of our community. Attendees will be introduced to organizations that need volunteer participation to continue to reach out and help the community. Event co-chair Judi Cestaro said, "Volunteerism is a win-win situation, it enhances people's lives and makes the community better as a whole. We're offering our first Volunteer Fair to show people how easy it is to incorporate volunteerism into their everyday lives."

Farmingdale State College will be holding a food drive on behalf of Rock Can Roll, Inc. and all attendees are asked to bring along one can or other nonperishable food item to the event.

At 11:15 a.m., Kevin McCrudden, President of Motivate America , founder of National Motivation & Inspiration Day, and author of the upcoming book, A User's Manual for Young Adults: 7 Secrets to a Successful Start in Life will speak. Mr. McCrudden inspires people of all ages to incorporate volunteerism into their lives. Volunteering enables young people, in particular, to be part of a solution while enhancing their student profile. It gives volunteers the opportunity to give back to their community and it benefits organizations by providing the much-needed manpower.
