At Marine Parents, our volunteers are the foundation of the organization. During the month of April, we honor and recognize our volunteers in a variety of ways throughout the month. We hold service appreciation lunches with local volunteers, and hold a lunch at the end of the month for volunteers who are able to travel to our corporate office for the care package packing day. We also award volunteers with "Volunteer of the Year" plaques and the Presidential Volunteer Service Awards pins and certificates.
Please take a moment to thank our volunteers for their work and read the articles for this year and past years honoring our volunteers.
National Volunteer Week is about inspiring, recognizing and encouraging people to seek out imaginative ways to engage in their communities. It’s about demonstrating to the nation that by working together, we have the fortitude to meet our challenges and accomplish our goals.
National Volunteer Week is about taking action and encouraging individuals and their respective communities to be at the center stage of social change – discovering and actively demonstrating their collective power to foster positive transformation.
Sponsored by Points of Light, National Volunteer Week was established in 1974 and has grown exponentially each subsequent year, with thousands of volunteer projects and special events scheduled throughout the week. For more information visit http://www.pointsoflight.org/
