(Reno, NV) – The SPCA of Northern Nevada (SPCA) is honoring our volunteers and their service to the SPCA with a week of events. National Volunteer Week is a time dedicated to demonstrating to the nation that by working together, we have the fortitude to meet our challenges and accomplish our goals.
National Volunteer Week, April 12 – 18, 2015, is about taking action and encouraging individuals and their respective communities to be at the center of social change – discovering and demonstrating their collective power to make a difference. All week the SPCA will thank our volunteers for their extraordinary work with tokens of appreciation at the shelter and on Tuesday, two volunteers will join us live on Alice 96.5 radio to talk about the importance of volunteering at the SPCA. On Saturday, April 18 from 8:30 am to 10:30 am volunteers will watch a special video presentation prepared from the staff, receive service awards and be served a continental breakfast. All volunteers who had hours in 2014 are invited to attend.
“The volunteers at the SPCA are an incredible asset to our organization and to the needs of the thousands of animals that come through our center each year. We honor them every day and are looking forward to a week of fun activities that highlight the 16,551 hours each and every one of these extraordinary individuals gave to the SPCA last year, said Charlene Hadwin, Executive Director for the SPCA of Northern Nevada.
A list of activities happening during the week can be found on our Facebook page www.facebook.com/spcanevada Volunteers are required to RSVP to Lilli Walker by Wednesday, April 8 to firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 775-324-7773 x 209.
National Volunteer Week, a program of Points of Light, was established in 1974 and has grown exponentially each year, with thousands of volunteer projects and special events scheduled throughout the week. With the sixth anniversary of the Edward M. Kennedy Serve America Act, the creation of the Volunteer Generation Fund and President Obama’s resonant call to serve this year will be even more inspiring.
