The Mental Health Association in Niagara County (MHA) will host a volunteer recruitment event on from noon to 6 p.m. Saturday, May 20, at The Ship Bar & Grill, 5612 Tonawanda Creek Road, Lockport. The event will include food and drink specials all afternoon, giveaways, as well as DJ Rosario playing music at the event.
A press release noted the MHA’s Compeer Niagara is a volunteer-driven program that is looking to bring in more volunteers to support individuals with a mental health diagnosis.
Agency Executive Director Daniel Colpoys said, “Volunteering for our Compeer Niagara program may be the easiest and most fun local volunteer opportunity there is. All we ask of our volunteers is to get together with the person they are matched with, and get out and do cool, fun, social, and/or educational activities with them once in a while.”
It is the mission of The Mental Health Association in Niagara County Inc. to promote mental wellness by sponsoring and implementing advocacy, education, and community service programs.
