What's your story?

Why do you volunteer? What does service mean to you? What's your earliest memory volunteering? Who do you think is inspired by your actions?

National Volunteer Week is a time to step back and recognize the impact that volunteers have on their community, as well as for volunteers to take an account of how volunteering and service has impacted their lives.

Join us in celebrating volunteers, their service, their commitment to our community and nonprofits, and the light they shine on the world around them. Volunteers bring our community closer together in a million different ways. Which is why we say thank you!
