Annual Volunteer Fair to Take Place During Connecting For Change Conference in October

Bristol County District Attorney Thomas M. Quinn III will hold his office’s annual Community Volunteer and Resource Fair on National Make a Difference Day, Saturday October 24, 2015 during the Marion Institute’s annual Connecting for Change Conference.

Community members are invited to attend this important event and learn about the many different volunteer opportunities in Bristol County to “Make a Difference” in our community.

During the past eight years, members of the district attorney’s office have volunteered more than 23,000 after-work hours to various non-profit organizations focusing on a wide range of issues like social justice, environmental conservation, youth mentoring, youth fitness, and assistance to the elderly.

District Attorney Quinn is a fervent believer that prevention and prosecution go hand in hand to make our community safer and a better place to live. The youth his office has worked with over the years have been reaping the benefits of working with volunteers who serve as role models, empowering them to make better decisions and making them less likely to engage in delinquent behavior and end up in our court system.

More than 20 agencies will be represented at the district attorney’s volunteer fair. The fair will be held from 11am-3pm in the Zeiterion VIP Lounge located at 684 Purchase Street, New Bedford MA.
