Volunteer at the FNVW Holiday Fair


The FNVW Holiday Fair is less than a month away and we need your help to make it a success.  The Holiday Fair is our big annual fundraiser.   It is one of the main ways we will fund programs that promote nonviolence throughout 2024 -  Can we count on you to volunteer and help us make it our best event ever?

Here is a link to the Holiday Fair Volunteer Sign-Up Form, which will allow you to sign up your favorite FNVW Holiday Fair volunteer opportunities.

We are also in need of some folks who would enjoy walking around a neighborhood or two with Holiday Fair fliers.  Please email if you would like to help out and get some fresh air at the same time!

We can't wait to see you at the Fair! Don't forget to invite your friends and family to join you for delicious food, unique crafts, the Unbelievable Bargain Board (formerly the Values Board), Quaker treasures, socializing and fun.
