Make a Difference in Our Communities
Join the Sullivan Renaissance Volunteer Corps
LIBERTY, May 2022 – Sullivan Renaissance will kick off an exciting season of grassroots community engagement with their annual Volunteer Corps Orientation on May 4, from 5:30-7:30 p.m. at the Tango Café at 219 Main Street, Hurleyville.
“Volunteering is a way to stay connected to our communities; from the people in them, to the places within them,” said Anne-Louise Scandariato, Sullivan Renaissance Volunteer Program Manager. “Anyone interested in volunteering can have a direct impact on a project’s success.”
The Volunteer Corps offers assistance to Sullivan Renaissance initiatives that connect people with places and with one another; while instilling community pride. Opportunities are matched to an individual’s skills, interests, and availability. These include gardening, program support, outreach, photography, social media support, and more. Everyone can be part of Sullivan Renaissance and the mission to build beautiful, active communities in Sullivan County.
“I was born and raised in Monticello and it feels good to give back. It is a great feeling to be part of beautifying Sullivan County,” shared Diane Moss, Volunteer Corps Member. “I enjoy working with everyone involved with Sullivan Renaissance and I volunteer because I want to make a difference where I live.”
Get involved! You can have an impact on your street, in your community, and with your neighbors. Volunteerism benefits the community, the recipients of the service, and the volunteers themselves. Research from the Corporation for National and Community Service indicates volunteering enables those participating in building expanded networks of friends and social connections while also improving their health and life expectancy.
The Volunteer orientation is a chance to get to know Sullivan Renaissance and explore ways to participate. Meet the staff and learn about initiatives, projects, workshops, and community service opportunities. If you are unsure, stop in to find out more.
Pre-registration for this free event is requested at SullivanRenaissance.org or by calling the office at 845-295-2445. Event details can also be found on the Sullivan Renaissance Facebook page. Light refreshments will be served.
