ST. MARY'S CITY, Md. (Sept. 18, 2008)—St. Mary's College of Maryland (SMCM) students and local community service organizations are hosting the annual Seahawk Service Fair Friday, Sept. 26, from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. The fair will serve as one-stop shopping for community members, students, faculty and staff who are looking for information on different service projects and events, internships, and opportunities to get involved with local community service organizations.
Among the off-campus service organizations tabling at the Campus Center Patio are Leah's House, Patuxent Habitat for Humanity, Christmas in April, the St. Mary's County Museum Division, and the Patuxent River Naval Air Museum and Association.
The fair is free and open to the public.
"The goal of this event is to make connections with the community organizations in the hope that they'll continue to look to SMCM for volunteers," said Tricia Realbuto, coordinator of orientation and service at SMCM. "We also welcome community members who are looking to help local service organizations."
