COALPORT – Several volunteers were recently honored during National Volunteer Week 2016 for their many hours of service to the community and the Coalport Center for Active Living.
They contribute their time to help others by helping with Farmers Market vouchers, manning the center’s booth at the street fair, quilting and embroidery for center fundraisers, and many other tasks to lend a hand at the center. They each received a certificate of appreciation for their volunteer work at the center to recognize them.
National Volunteer Week, brought to you by Points of Light, is about inspiring, recognizing, and encouraging people to seek out imaginative ways to engage in their communities.
According to the President of the United States, “each day, humble people of every background and belief come together to fulfill the timeless responsibility we have as Americans: to accept certain obligations to one another. People of all ages can volunteer, and anyone can, through the smallest of acts, do their part to improve the lives of others.”
“During National Volunteer Week 2016, we celebrate the selfless individuals around our country who channel their civic virtues through volunteerism, and we encourage more people to make service an integral part of their lives.”
