The Standard’s Volunteer Expo Returns to Fountain Square for its Sixth Year

Free annual event helps connect nonprofits with local volunteers and supporters

CINCINNATI--()--On Thursday, Sept. 8, 2016, Cincinnati’s largest volunteer expo returns to Fountain Square for its sixth consecutive year! The Volunteer Expo, presented by The Standard, is a free event with more than 40 participating nonprofits in one place. The expo was created to help community members connect with nonprofits and learn about service and donation opportunities that match their skills and interests.

From 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., Volunteer Expo attendees can meet with and learn about a wide variety of nonprofits that make a difference in the community. Participating organizations represent the arts, culture, humanities, the environment, animal welfare, health, human services and more. If you’ve ever wanted to make a difference but weren’t sure how, the Volunteer Expo is a great place to start – whether you’re looking for a one-time volunteer opportunity or a longer-term commitment.

“The nonprofit organizations at the Volunteer Expo help make Cincinnati a strong and vibrant community, and many rely on support from the general public to do their work,” said Greg Ness, chairman, president and CEO of The Standard. “The Volunteer Expo is a reflection of The Standard’s long-standing commitment to organizations that make a positive difference in the community. We’re proud to host this event for the sixth year in Cincinnati.”

The Volunteer Expo also kicks off The Standard’s annual Employee Giving Campaign that encourages employees to support nonprofit organizations of their choosing. Last year, employees and retirees raised more than $2.2 million (including The Standard’s dollar-for-dollar match), supporting more than 1,350 organizations.

The 2016 Volunteer Expo takes place Thursday, Sept. 8, from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. in Fountain Square, located at the intersection of Fifth Street and Vine in downtown Cincinnati. The event is open to the public and free of charge. Learn more at www.standard.com/volunteer.
