National Volunteer Week! 

April 7-13, 2019

National Volunteer Week is a time to celebrate the impact of volunteer service on our communities. The local events, volunteer projects and social media conversations that take place during this week demonstrate that service unites – bringing people together to tackle society’s tough challenges, spark change, and build stronger, more resilient communities.
