Children’s Charity Celebrates 40th Annual National Volunteer Week
(BINGHAMTON, NY) – The Children’s Charity of Greater Binghamton encourages all residents of the Binghamton region to recognize National Volunteer Week, by helping to better our community.
National Volunteer Week, April 6-12, 2014, is a time to celebrate people doing extraordinary things through service.
Locally, the Children’s Charity of Greater Binghamton will host a community Easter Egg Hunt at Recreation Park in Binghamton, on Saturday, April 19th, 2014, at 11:00am. Volunteers are still needed for the event.
Though the Easter Egg Hunt falls after the nationally recognized week of service, preparation for the event has been underway since January. Those who cannot give their time can donate candy to help stuff over 10,000 eggs.
Candy donations can be dropped off at:
Stifel Nicolaus Financial Corp., 122 State Street, Binghamton. Monday – Friday, 9am – 4pm; or
Court Jester Gym, 216 Reynolds Road, Johnson City.
Donations will be accepted until Monday, April 14th, 2014.
“The spirit of volunteerism, service and giving to a cause greater than one’s self is alive in Greater Binghamton,” said Children’s Charity President Jim Worhach. “This is a caring and hard-working community, it’s important that we come together and work to better Greater Binghamton and in doing so we help instill important principles in our next generation of leaders.”
This year marks the 40th anniversary of National Volunteer Week, demonstrating the enduring importance of recognizing volunteers for their vital contributions.
The Children’s Charity of Greater Binghamton was formed for the charitable purpose of providing the tools and resources needed to help children in the Greater Binghamton area develop emotionally, physically and socially as they grow into young adults.
