National Volunteer Week is April 15-21, 2018

National Volunteer Week was established in 1974 by President Richard Nixon. This was done as a way to celebrate the hard work and dedication of volunteers. Each President since then has issued a proclamation during National Volunteer Week. This year, National Volunteer Week is April 15-21, and during this time we ask you to join us in celebrating the hard work and dedication of our volunteers here at Marine Parents.
