GREENVILLE, N.C. (WITN) - The Junior League of Greenville has postponed their Volunteer Expo due to an increase in COVID-19 cases in Pitt County.

Event committee chair, Becky Rooks says the decision was made after consulting public health officials and hospital staff who report a significant increase in COVID-19 cases in Pitt County and the significant risk of transmission of the Omicron variant.

Rooks says the league made the difficult decision to postpone the event to February 26th.

According to Rooks, throughout the expo, the leagues goals are to promote volunteerism, foster voluntarism, connect nonprofit organizations with a pool of volunteers and ensure community members are aware of the wide volunteer opportunities available to them.

“A brief postponement will better help realize these goals. We look forward to seeing our community out in force and showing love to nonprofit organizations on February 26, 2022.”
