April Is National Volunteer Month

In the United States, the entire month of April is designated as National Volunteer Month. It serves as a reminder that even small acts of kindness can create a ripple effect of positivity, inspiring others to act, to realize their power to make a difference, and be a force that transforms the world.

Each year, the celebration of National Volunteer Week is the third week of April, during which we recognize the contributions of volunteers who lend their time, talent, voice and support to causes they care about in their communities. National Volunteer Week was established in 1974, and has grown exponentially each year, with thousands of volunteer projects and events scheduled throughout the week.

So please, recognize your volunteers this month by creating an awards night or lunch. You can give certifications of years of service, write them a personalized thank-you card, give them a small gift, like a $10 card for a local coffee shack, make a visual display at your place of business with their picture volunteering in action, make a badge or a pin of accomplishment, post on social media, etc. It’s easy and not too expensive to show appreciation.

Here at Park County Community Journal, we recognize volunteer efforts through our Volunteer Spotlight featured bi-monthly. We are going to step up our game for the last Sunday edition of the month on April 28th and dedicate our centerfold for non-profits and organizations to recognize their volunteers. We invite you to participate!

To share the remarkable work of your volunteers, you can participate in our April Is Volunteer Month Appreciation page by emailing the following information to, or drop it off at The Main Print Shop at 108 North Main Street in Livingston. Please do so before April 22nd to be included.
