- Laurel Highland Historical Village group members will be available on site from 12 Noon until 5pm. We need volunteers for our organization. All non-profit organizations in Cambria County have been invited to participate. The event is free to the general public. During the event, many adults, senior citizens, middle school, high school and college students will sign up for service hours and volunteer opportunities. Volunteering for all programs will allow those interested to invest some of their free time in projects and programs that make a difference in the quality of life in our region.
If you would like to participate in LHHV, please stop by and see our table. If you like to work in the outdoors, plant flowers, clean-up Honan Avenue Trail, or participate in any one of our events by volunteering, we would be happy to discuss those opportunities with you. We conduct Veterans Food Drives during the warmer months at local businesses. If you are interested in donating your time, we would love to take the opportunity to talk about our mission. We are committed to supporting the various ethnic heritages of our region. Come join us on April 4th and make a difference in your community
