Congressman Brian Higgins and Niagara University's IMPACT/ReNU Niagara announce the fourth annual LiveNF Volunteer Fair will take place from 4-7 p.m. Wednesday, March 28, at the Niagara Community Center, 530 66th St., Niagara Falls.
The event is held as an introduction to National Volunteer Month, which begins in April. The Volunteer Fair seeks to encourage individual and family volunteerism while recognizing local volunteers who have contributed to the community. At 5:30 p.m., Higgins will announce the 2018 inductees into the Niagara Falls Volunteer Hall of Fame.
In addition to the Volunteer Fair, Niagara University will offer a special edition of "Books, Balls and Blocks,"
a children's educational program that also presents opportunities for early childhood and literacy screenings. Funded by the United Way of Greater Niagara, the program's activities - games, art activities, interactive stories and more - will also run from 4-7 p.m. and are designed for children between the ages of 4 months and 6 years old.
