WENATCHEE – Following in the successful footsteps of January’s Meet Your Match volunteer networking forum at Pybus University, the Saturday Non-Profit Day at Pybus Market will showcase local programs needing volunteered time, energy and knowledge.
From 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. over 40 non-profit organizations will line the market’s concourse and representatives will be at the ready to share information about their programs, purposes and how to get involved. If you have been looking to volunteer for a local non-profit organizatio, this is your chance to learn about area programs — all under one roof for four hours.
January’s Pybus University ‘Meet Your Match’ event shared a similar vision. Aly Laris, Pybus’ operations and marketing coordinator, along with Meet Your Match organizers Katie Tackman and Annie Safar, planned the upcoming Non-Profit Day at Pybus.
“The focus of this event is really on the organizations themselves and we know these organizations will bring lots of energy and fun to this event,” Laris said. “Matt Cadman (the executive director for Numerica Performing Arts Center) will also be giving a few short talks during the course of the day.”
Programs expected to attend include those dealing with literacy, senior activities and services to the local farmer’s market and children’s programs. “A lot of people think that they don’t have the time to volunteer and have an impact, but you never know what will inspire you,” Laris said.
