April is National Volunteer Recognition Month

April is a month that brings many things to mind: spring, flowers, warm weather. However, one thing that the month of April signifies that isn’t always mentioned is that it is Volunteer Recognition Month.

Volunteers live hectic lives with families, carpools, work, social engagements, etc., but continue to give what few moments they have left in their day to help others.

This month we honor the people who dedicate themselves to taking action and solving problems in our communities.
