Are you having trouble deciding what organization you'd like to join? If so, Councilwoman Susan A. Berland has the answer for you: The Premier Edition of the Volunteer Resource Guide.
Councilwoman Berland's Volunteer Resource Guide , published in September and currently available at high schools, libraries and various organizations throughout the Town (not to mention Town Hall) is a compilation of numerous associations that accept volunteers. The Guide provides precise contact information for over fifty organizations including fire departments, medical services, libraries, school districts, animal services, senior centers, family associations, religious organizations, women's groups and more. Perfect for students, scouts, seniors or anyone looking to donate some extra time to a worth cause, Councilwoman Susan A. Berland's Volunteer Resource Guide is essential to the community.
"Volunteerism is the foundation of the community," remarked Councilwoman Berland. "The Town of Huntington has a plethora of services available to its citizens that rely upon its volunteer base to thrive. Huntington could not be the remarkable Town it is today without the kind acts committed by its selfless volunteers. The Volunteer Resource Guide addresses the need for a concise compilation of the needs of volunteer organizations in the community and I welcome all to take advantage of it."
Huntington Breast Cancer Action Coalition Founder Karen Miller added: "The Town of Huntington is still ahead of the pack. The fact that we have taken the time to put together a resource guide securing communication between not-for-profits, the people who service our community and our elected officials is an example of how the Town of Huntington operates. Susan Berland is to be applauded for her diligence in keeping this project on track. The HBCAC looks forward to distributing this guide to our constituents."
