This Wednesday, March 7, 2012 The Grand Strand Job and Volunteer Assistance Fair will be held at the Myrtle Beach Convention Center.
Sponsored by the Senior Citizens Advisory Committee, the event is free, runs from 9 a.m. to noon, and is geared for senior citizens.
Many senior citizens in the greater Myrtle Beach area want to contribute their time and talent, but don't know what opportunities are available or which organizations to contact. The Senior Job and Volunteer Assistance Fair helps match seniors with companies and non-profit groups that need assistance, whether full-time, part-time or volunteer.
Only businesses offering traditional employment opportunities and charitable organizations seeking volunteers are invited to participate. No items may be sold at the event.
Just to be on the safe side, bring $3 for parking at the convention center because, more than likely, applicants will have to pay to park. And whatever you do, do not bring any helium balloons
