Serve Washington, the state commission on national and community service, reaches out to you in hopes you would be willing to help us get the word out on this effort to all of the Statewide business resource groups either through their newsletters, distribution lists or social media. We posted the announcement on our Facebook and Twitter if you want to share that way.
Due to the ongoing pandemic, Serve Washington is unable to host the Governor’s Volunteer Service Awards this year. While we can’t gather, we can still recognize the many ways Washingtonians made a difference. Volunteers and helpers continue to show up for their communities in a variety of ways. We are eager to recognize and honor their contribution. Serve Washington is excited to announce a new effort to recognize Washington’s volunteers:
The 2021 Volunteer Story Project
From now until March 1st we are collecting volunteer stories to highlight on our social media channels throughout April. This will coincide with National Volunteer Week. We ask you to help us honor your volunteer(s) by participating and/or promoting the 2021 Volunteer Story Project. Consider sharing our flyer in any upcoming newsletters or promoting on your organization’s social media. Additional information and the submission form can be found on Serve Washington’s website.
Below is some potential language content for promotion:
Neighbors lending a hand, community activists and volunteers make a difference in our communities every day. Especially in 2020. Serve Washington invites you to share volunteer stories and inspire service across the state.
2020 offered challenges and Washingtonians responded! Help us share how you or someone you know made a difference in 2020.
