Media advisory: Tri-Cities to hold community, volunteer fair
RICHLAND, Wash. – Members of the media are invited to cover Washington State University Tri-Cities’ Community Engagement and Volunteer Fair 11 a.m.-2 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 24, on the West Building patio. The event is open only to the campus community and participating organizations.
The event will welcome 58 campus and community organizations, 29 of which are local nonprofit organizations. Students will have the chance to sign up for student clubs, find out how they can start their own and find out how they can volunteer for local service organizations in the mid-Columbia region.
Students will also have the opportunity to meet with faculty from different academic disciplines, as well as participate in a campus barbeque. The Associated Students of WSU Tri-Cities (ASWSUTC) will hand out gear to students.
“This is an opportunity for students and campus employees to see how they can help improve our local community through upcoming and ongoing projects, as well as make some friends with students that have similar interests through student clubs,” said Amber Eubanks, WSU Tri-Cities community engagement specialist.
The fair is put on by the office of community engagement, student life and academic affairs, as well as by ASWSUTC and the Student Entertainment Board.
