Find good options for summer volunteering

Volunteer signLooking for places to volunteer in the community to use on applications for college scholarships? Or are you an adult just wanting to spend some time lending a hand with an organization to better your community?

The Southwest Oklahoma City Public Library is bringing many of those ideas together in one place at its Volunteer Opportunities Fair, set for 1 to 4 p.m. Saturday, April 29, at the library.

The event provides a chance for either adults or teens to get ideas on volunteering in the community, which often is important for college applications or scholarship opportunities.

Numerous local groups will be participating, and a complete list is available here.

Registration is not required in advance to participate and it is offered for either teens or adults.
