As an organization that values service unto others, National Church Residences takes pride in our volunteers by recognizing them for their hard work. April is Volunteer Appreciation Month, and we will celebrate volunteers who have gone above and beyond in their service to our mission. Volunteers who have served more than 100, 500 and 1,000 hours will be recognized with award ribbons.
Those who have served 4,000 hours or more will be honored with the President’s Volunteer Service Award which is issued from the President of the United States of America. Finally, two individuals will be recognized as volunteer of the year based on nominations from staff that see their service as deserving of this award. All nominees will receive a congratulatory letter regarding their nomination. Volunteers receiving service recognition must be registered as a National Church Residences volunteer and record of their service hours on file.
National Church Residences has a new partner for finding volunteers. We will work with VolunteerMatch to assist site staff in the recruitment of new volunteers. VolunteerMatch is a web-based tool that allows organizations, such as National Church Residences, to be more efficient and effective at involving new volunteers who otherwise may not know of an organizations’ volunteer needs. The use of VolunteerMatch is a way to increase community involvement and benefit National Church Residences residents and communities.
Director of Volunteer Services Stacey Kyser shared, “Sixty-four million Americans volunteer on an annual basis so there is no shortage of those willing to serve in our country. VolunteerMatch is a tool to assist us in getting the right people at the right community in the right volunteer role and providing them with the opportunity to engage with our residents and produce positive outcomes.”
