National Volunteer Week

Thank you for your service!

National Volunteer Week is an annual opportunity to step back and recognize the hardworking volunteers who dedicate their time, talents and passions to improving every corner of this great nation.

While it’s easy to get caught up in statistics – more than 60 million volunteers, nearly 8 billion hours of service – it’s the “good” behind those numbers that is truly awesome. We have a nation full of schools, parks, hospitals, veterans’ organizations, senior centers and non-profits large and small whose goals would be unreachable without the contributions of their skilled and passionate volunteers. Let’s all take the time – not just this week, but throughout the year – to thank the people in our lives who are strengthening our communities through volunteerism.
