National Volunteer Week: 8 Days of Service

March 9, 2012

National Volunteer Week encourages people to seek out imaginative ways to engage in their communities.  This year United Way of Southern Nevada’s Volunteer Center is celebrating National Volunteer Week by sponsoring eight days of service.  Each day features volunteer opportunities that revolve around a different social cause. Volunteers can choose their preferred impact area and sign up for an opportunity that is just right for them:

Sunday, April 15  – Health

Monday, April 16 – Veterans Affairs

Tuesday, April 17 – Hunger & Homelessness

Wednesday, April 18 – Youth & Education

Thursday, April 19 – Potpourri

Friday, April 20 – Arts & Culture

Saturday, April 21 – Environment

Sunday, April 22 – Animals

Partnering agencies are asked to provide awareness about the importance of volunteerism and services offered in Southern Nevada. In addition to receiving new volunteers and advocates, partners will also gain media exposure and public relations surrounding the event.

To be a part of National Volunteer week, contact Beth Greco at BethG@uwsn.org.
