The President’s Volunteer Service Award recognizes, celebrates and holds up as role models Americans making a positive impact as engaged and deeply committed volunteers. Led by the Corporation for National and Community Service and managed in partnership with Points of Light, this program allows Certifying Organizaitons, such as United Way of Lowndes & Noxubee, to recognize some of the most dedicated volunteers by joining with the President of the United States to thank say thank you.
In 2003, the President's Council on Service and Civic Participation founded the President's Volunteer Service Award to recognize the important role of volunteers in America's strength and national identity. This award honors individuals whose service positively impacts communities in every corner of the nation and inspires those around them to take action, too.
The PVSA has continued under each administration, honoring the volunteers who are using their time and talents to solve some of the toughest challenges facing our nation.
Effective July 2016, United Way of Lowndes County (ROS Key KMP-7282) became an approved Official Certifying Organization for the President's Volunteer Service Award. To learn more about PVSA and to register your volunteer hours click here.
