The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
Piedmont Environmental Alliance's mission is to inspire people to make choices that protect and restore the environment.
PEA promotes environmental stewardship through practical life applications to a broad cross-section of the community. We showcase and promote a wide range of local environmentally-conscious businesses and organizations. We also facilitate networking opportunities for the region's many environmental organizations and programs, leaders in the local sustainability movement, and environmentally-minded individuals. Through events such as the Piedmont Earth Day Fair and our quarterly Environmental Exchanges, we extend environmental training, services and expertise to the broader community.
This is an excellent organization with dedicated volunteers. PEA puts on the Piedmont Earth Day Fair every year. More than 100 volunteers are needed to pull this event off. It's a lot of fun, and a most excellent cause! The 2012 Earth Day Fair is on April 28, 2012 at the Dixie Classic Fairgrounds. It's a completely FREE event! FREE admission. FREE parking. FREE music. FREE children's activities. Come meet local businesses and organizations that are dedicated to sustainability and protecting our environment.
