National Volunteer Week, April 23-29

President Trump Proclaims National Volunteer Week

During National Volunteer Week, we celebrate the spirit of compassion and generosity that drives us to care for others, and we recognize America's volunteers.  Our volunteers are often unsung and unseen, but they are heroes.

One of our Nation's greatest strengths has always been our citizens' unique commitment to improving the lives of others.  The principles of charitable compassion and philanthropic collaboration were at the heart of our Founding Fathers' efforts to build a culture that serves the greater good. From our earliest days, Americans have answered the call to help those in need at home and around the world.  This service, fundamental to our Nation's character, is renewed each day by citizens who generously give their time and talents to help others.
