Since 1974, April has meant a celebration of volunteers nationwide. Sponsored by the Points of Light Foundation and the national HandsOn Network, this week of recognition focuses on the importance of service in our community. At HandsOn River Region we have commemorated the week with our Volunteer of the Year Awards for the last 41 years. In addition to recognizing current volunteers, we hope to inspire new leaders in service. Have you volunteered yet in April? Theres still time! Connect with us and we’ll be the change you’ve been looking for. Connect with inspirational stories of volunteers by searching #NVW2015 on Twitter and Facebook.
