National Volunteer Week (April 7-13, 2019)


National Volunteer Week is an annual celebration observed in many countries to promote and show appreciation for volunteerism. It was established in 1974, and is organized in the United States by the Points of Light foundation.

National Volunteer Week is a time to celebrate the impact of volunteer service on our communities, and recognize the power of volunteers to tackle society’s greatest challenges, to build stronger communities and be a force that transforms the world. We would like to take this opportunity to honor our extraordinary ACS and Disaster Response volunteers for their time, hard-work, and dedication to assist those in need. Their stories serve to inspire others to realize their ability to make a difference in the lives those in need.

To take part in the National Volunteer Week, plan or attend an event to celebrate the impact of volunteers in your community, and inspire others to serve. Click here for more information.
