The Christ United Methodist Church Mission Committee and Boomers, Shakers and Beyond, a 50+ group, are teaming up for a Volunteer Expo to help the community learn about local nonprofits and explore their volunteer needs. The event will be held Sept. 11 from 4-7 pm. It is free and open to the public.
Christ UMC and the Boomers group believe the Volunteer Expo is a way for organizations in Chattanooga to highlight their work and their need for volunteers. It’s also a way for those who desire to volunteer to explore opportunities and talk with representatives. "Organizations face a shortage of volunteers. At the same time, many people have a desire to volunteer but don’t know where to begin. The Expo brings the two together," officials said.
More than 25 nonprofit organizations will participate in the event.
Christ United Methodist Church is located at 8645 East Brainerd Road. For more information, contact Lindsey Gallaher at 423-892-9363.
