April is National Volunteer Month

As we step into April, we not only welcome the blossoming of spring but also celebrate National Volunteer Month, a time dedicated to honoring the invaluable contributions of volunteers nationwide. Originally established as National Volunteer Week in 1974, this month-long observance has evolved into a beacon of appreciation for the selfless individuals who dedicate their time and efforts to serving others.
