Long Island Volunteer Fair at Farmingdale State College

Long Island community and are not-for-profits get together

The call to community service is a timely topic as we head into national elections.

Would you like to learn more about nonprofit organizations and charities? Do you want to discover how volunteering can make a difference in your community and your life? Plan on attending the 2nd Annual Long Island Volunteer Fair, hosted by Farmingdale State College, on Thursday, October 23, 2008 from 10:00 a.m.- 1:00 p.m. in Roosevelt Hall.

The Fair, sponsored by OSI Pharmaceuticals, is designed to bring members of the Long Island community and the area's nonprofits together. Attendees will be introduced to organizations that need volunteer participation in order to continue to reach out and help those in need.

Farmingdale State College will be getting the volunteer spirit going by collecting pennies; healthy nonperishable food and school supplies; cell phones and chargers; paper towels, name brand canned cat food, Pedigree brand canned dog food, laundry detergent; and baby and infant needs on behalf of a few of the participating nonprofits.

Featured at this event will be Robert Catell, Chairman of U.S. National Grid and the Long Island Association. He will be discussing and signing his book The CEO and the Monk: One Company's Journey to Profit and Purpose. Joining him will be co-author Kenny Moore, who left cloistered life after 15 years to pursue a career in the corporate world. Their presentation is slated for 11a.m.
