United Way, partners provide opportunities to make a difference in April
As part of National Volunteer Month this April, United Way of Larimer County and its partners are providing multiple ways for community members to get involved and make a difference.
Communities across the United States have celebrated National Volunteer Week since 1974, when President Nixon signed an executive order establishing the second week of April as an annual celebration of volunteering. Since then, every U.S. president has signed a proclamation promoting National Volunteer Week.
In Larimer County, which is recognized as one of the top mid-size cities in the country for volunteerism rates, the celebration is expanded from just one week to the entire month of April.
“We know that volunteerism has a huge impact on social change in our community,” said Gordan Thibedeau, President & CEO of United Way of Larimer County. “We invite community members to join us in lending a hand during National Volunteer Month, because together we can drive positive, lasting change for children and families right here in Larimer County.”
This year, there are several ways to get involved and make a difference for National Volunteer Month:
