A Volunteer Fair will be held on Sunday, January 15 in hopes of matching volunteers to local agencies. The event will be held in the Salvation Army gymnasium from 1:00 to 4:00 p.m. in Cape Girardeau.

Over 40 non-profit organizations in the Cape Girardeau and Jackson area are in need of volunteers. Residents are encouraged to check out what groups need their help and learn more about area non-profits to find an organization that is a fit.

We spoke with Elizabeth Shelton, Executive Director of the United Way of Southeast Missouri and Mark Hotop, Volunteer Coordinator with Voices for Children/CASA to learn more about the event.
