Gadsden State to host Nonprofit Day
As a part of National Community College Month, Gadsden State Community College is hosting Nonprofit Day April 13 from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. at the One Stop Center on the East Broad Street campus.
“Gadsden State is a firm believer in the word ‘community’ and has always believed in the value of community service and the importance of giving back,” said Pam Clough, director of continuing education and organizer of Gadsden State’s Community College Month events. “Nonprofit Day is being held to celebrate and promote awareness of Etowah County’s nonprofit organizations, the work they do and the communities they serve.”
Nonprofit Day will attract people who are thinking about volunteering or those who are already volunteering but want to see what opportunities are available.
“Nonprofit Day provides a fun and relaxed environment where community members, employees and students can gather information about local non-profit services,” she said. “We want to raise public awareness of the missions of our local nonprofit agencies.”
Nonprofit Day is a non-cost event. Organizations wanting to participate in Nonprofit Day should setup a tabletop display or booth and have representatives on-hand to answer questions. Be sure to have lists of volunteer opportunities for the organization as well as contact information. Please have information for potential clients as well. Gadsden State will provide a round or rectangle table and two chairs for each organization. Electricity is available upon request. Set-up will begin at 8 a.m. and doors will open to the public at 9 a.m.
