The groups will have reps to speak with, information to hand out and of course, chances to join in the volunteering fun. Here are some of the participating non profits: One Brick Orlando, Ourlando, Relay For Lif…
This past Saturday morning the Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida piloted their brand new Produce to the People program at Victory World Outreach in Maitland. They delivered a truckload of produce to a team of volunteers who handed it out immediately. "We wanted to focus on fresh produce for this program because that can be the most difficult for our clients to have access to on a limited budget." They're doing two more of these "Produce to the People" events this month and could use the volunteers. October 24th | 8:00 a.m.-10:00 a.m. Solid Rock Church of God 1904 North Michigan Ave. Kissimmee, Florida 34774
October 31st | 8:00 a.m.-10:00 a.m. New Covenant Church of Central Florida 990 Belvedere Road Orlando, Florida 32820

Mad Cow Theatre is putting together the 7th Annual Orlando Cabaret Festival and they need volunteers:"...Preparations are underway for the 7th Annual Orlando Cabaret Festival running April 30 - May 10, 2009.
