MANCHESTER, NH– Doing good while doing good business is one of the keys to professional success in a community setting.

That’s why Stay Work Play invites young professionals to Stay Work Play Give on April 21 at one of five regional community non-profit fairs.

Stay Work Play is a local organization that supports ongoing economic, workforce, and community development initiatives by promoting New Hampshire as a favorable place for young workers and recent college graduates to live, announces the launch of Stay Work Play Give.

This new effort is a partnership between Stay Work Play and young professional organizations throughout New Hampshire to host local nonprofit fairs in Manchester, Windham, Laconia, Claremont and Concord on Tuesday, April 21. The campaign’s goal is to encourage Granite State young professionals to become civically engaged in their communities by volunteering with local nonprofits.

“New Hampshire has an incredible network of civic-minded young professionals who want to make a difference in their careers and communities,” said Kate Luczko, Stay Work Play’s executive director. “The new Stay Work Play Give initiative pulls all of the resources and information about local nonprofits together so we can easily share these opportunities to serve within the community.”

Similar to a job fair, the five events across the state will include exhibitions from local nonprofits where attendees can learn about volunteer opportunities, committee and board member openings, fundraising events and other chances to get involved with participating nonprofits. There is no cost to attend, but registration in advance is requested. Refreshments will be provided by The Common Man.
