Age-In-Place, a nonprofit department of the Seabury Resources for Aging, seeks participants for a community volunteer fair at the National Mall on Sept. 25. In addition to learning about volunteer opportunities in the metro area, community members are needed to help with the event’s planning, logistics, set-up and more.

Event coordinator Tawana Moore said national response to the Age-in-Place program has received support from national volunteers, but is still seeking to grow a community base in the District area.

“I have been in this position for 8 years and have recruited over 8,500 volunteers though out the country. Sad to say, only very few local volunteers volunteer,” Moore said. Seabury Resources for Aging provides personalized, affordable services and housing options to help older adults in the greater Washington, D.C., area live with independence and dignity.
