BRIEF: Mentor fair set for Monday at the Omni
Jan 26, 2013 (The Daily Progress - McClatchy-Tribune Information Services via COMTEX) --
The United Way-Thomas Jefferson Area is looking for a few good mentors.
Building on a tradition that began in 2009, representatives from 13 area service organizations will gather from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monday at the Omni Charlottesville Hotel in downtown Charlottesville to lobby would-be volunteers.
"So many people hear about these groups and say, 'I should do that,' but they never pick up the phone," said Kim Connolly, vice president of marketing and communications for the local United Way. "This is a great opportunity for people to find a way to get involved -- and there are so many different options."
Want to play golf with kids Teach a kid to read Become a Big Brother or a Big Sister Not sure The annual fair, timed to coincide with national mentoring month, is a good place to start.
"People who come to this leave feeling more connected to their community," Connolly said. "Come sign up to get more information. No commitment required."
