Expo matches organizations with volunteers

January 23, 2014 by  

The Chicago Volunteer Expo will be taking place this February at the Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum in Lincoln Park this February.

The event is expected to feature over 80 local non-profit and charity groups from all over the Chicago area. These will be organizations representing environmental activism, the arts, health, seniors and social justice causes. It will allow those living in the area to learn about all of the different volunteer opportunities there are and to help those organizations find people to help them run more efficiently.

One perk about attending the Expo will be that everyone will get free admission to the museum. They can visit the current exhibition “The Dreams of Martha” which is a series of watercolors marking the 100th year anniversary of the extinction of the passenger pigeon. Alternatively, they can enjoy the Judy Istock Butterfly Haven which is a large greenhouse housing more than 1,000 butterflies.

It is expected that most of the non-profit organizations who will be taking part in the expo will be helping to advertise it in order to attract people from all over, including nearby Wheeling. When companies need to do this they often invest in services such as flyer printing. Flyers are inexpensive to produce and be distributed in many way which do not add to the cost.

The Chicago Volunteer Expo is being held at the Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum on February 1 from 10:00 AM – 4:00 PM. Admission is free. For more information, visit the official event website.
