National Volunteer Week is April 6 – 12, 2014. This year’s National Volunteer Week is about taking action and encouraging individuals and their respective communities to be at the center of social change, with the goal of discovering and actively demonstrating their collective power to make a difference.
The City of Parkville plans to conduct a volunteer recognition event during National Volunteer Week for the City to honor local Parkville residents or Park Hill School District student volunteers who have helped make a difference in the community over the past year. Volunteers would need to be Parkville residents, volunteers serving Parkville-based agencies, or any student in the Park Hill School District.
Nominations will be accepted via a web form on Survey Monkey. The nomination website address is: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/W7KTCK6. Nominations will be accepted from March 5 – 31, 2014. City Staff will then select from among the nominations and highlight a different volunteer each day during Volunteer Week on the City’s website and in social media. The Board would provide recognition at the regular Board of Alderman meeting on April 15, 2014, for those volunteers interested in attending.
