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. The Award enables community organizations–as Certifying and Leadership Organizations–to amplify their gratitude by joining with the President of the United States to thank their most dedicated volunteers.
In 2003, the President’s Council on Service and Civic Participation launched the President's Volunteer Service Award in 2003 to recognize the importance of volunteers to America's strength and national identity, and furthermore, to honor the deeply invested volunteers whose service is multiplied through the inspiration they give others.
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.
