Hands On Genesee holds Volunteer Expo

Posted: Updated:
FLINT (WJRT) -

(10/11/12) - It's an event that makes lending a helping hand a lot easier.

Hands On Genesee hosted its fourth annual Volunteer Expo Thursday afternoon at the University of Michigan-Flint.

The folks with Hands On Genesee say a lot of times, people want to help, but they have no idea how to get the ball rolling.

The event is one-stop shopping for potential volunteers.

Until 7 p.m. Thursday, more than 40 charities and nonprofit organizations were hand at University of Michigan-Flint's University Center.

All the organizations had a booth set up, so people could stop by and check them out.

They had well-known nonprofits such as Big Brothers, Big Sisters and the Salvation Army, right down to smaller nonprofits, such as Abilities First - a group that helps disabled people with ceramics and crafts.

Last year they saw 400 people at the expo. This year, they hoped to see even more.
