Once again, we are partnering with Jim Coleman , Ltd., to offer a wide variety of promotional ideas.
President Richard Nixon established National Volunteer Week with an executive order in 1974, as a way to recognize and celebrate the efforts of volunteers. Every sitting U.S. president since Nixon has issued a proclamation during National Volunteer Week (as have many U.S. mayors and governors).
Since then, the original emphasis on celebration has widened; the week has become a nationwide effort to urge people to get out and volunteer in their communities. Every April, charities, hospitals, and communities recognize volunteers and foster a culture of service.
Join your peers nationwide during the 2018 National Healthcare Volunteer Week, April 15-21, in celebrating and recognizing your volunteers' efforts to advance your organization.
This is an opportunity for you to recognize the integral role volunteers play in advancing patient engagement and quality care.
