We are looking forward to announcing the 2020 (2nd Annual) Washington County Volunteer Expo. Please stay tuned to our website, social media and newsletter for more updates. We will be announcing the date for 2020 soon! 
 
April is National Volunteer Month and we're very excited to offer a first of its kind, volunteering event right here in Washington County! This event will be held at Robinwood Professional Center on Wednesday, April 10th from 3pm-7pm. The Washington County Volunteer Expo is a free event, open to the public. We have over 40 nonprofit and volunteer based agencies secured to attend, on the spot "instant volunteering" options, self care opportunities, educational workshops and much more!
 
Are you a nonprofit looking to build your volunteer base? Are you a community member who wants to give back but you're just unsure where your time would be best spent? Then, this is the event for you! Our goal is to provide nonprofits the chance to reach more volunteers and for volunteers to learn more about the ways in which they can help organizations meet their needs right here in Washington County. Please stay tuned to our website and social media (join the facebook event here) for the latest updates.
