This year marks the 40th anniversary of National Volunteer Week, a Points of Light program that aims to demonstrate the enduring importance of recognizing volunteers for their vital contributions. Today, 25 million more Americans are volunteering in their communities than when President Bush spoke of a “thousand points of light” and made his call to service in 1989.
This week, April 6-12, is about inspiring and recognizing volunteers who work together to accomplish a multitude of goals. Join us in this nationwide effort to encourage service and volunteer efforts on your campuses and in your communities.
Make sure to follow Phi Kappa Phi on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram as we highlight and celebrate various service efforts throughout the week. We also want to know what service projects you are participating in this week. Tell us or show us using #NVW2014!
