Celebrating Volunteerism | April 7-17, 2019 @ locations throughout the County
Inspiring, recognizing, and encouraging people to seek out imaginative ways to engage in their communities.
National Volunteer Week is our annual collective opportunity to join with advocates from across the country in highlighting the incredible work of more than 60 million volunteers who are creating positive change in local communities.
In the last year we've had the opportunity to partner with over 15,000 volunteers from Santa Cruz County who have infused nearly $12 million dollars into our local economy by giving their time to local organizations. That is indeed worth celebrating!
We invite you to join us in saying thank-you or taking action.
