City appreciates its volunteers during National Volunteer Week

City appreciates its volunteers during National Volunteer Week

In 2018, Westminster benefited from the service of nearly 700 active volunteers. Our volunteers serve in a wide variety of positions across the city, performing countless tasks that improve the lives of our citizens. Snow removal, victim advocate services, open space invasive species removal, boards and commissions membership…these are just a few of the ways volunteers give back to the city.

As we approach National Volunteer Week, April 7 through April 13, we ask you to join us in honoring these volunteers. The ability of our organization to provide quality municipal services is in no small part due to the commitment and dedication of our volunteers. Last year, over 32,000 hours of volunteer service was logged, which is the hourly equivalent of over $700,000.  

This special week was designated by an executive order of President Richard Nixon in 1974. Every President since has signed a proclamation of support announcing National Volunteer Week as a time to recognize volunteerism throughout the United States.

National Volunteer Week is about inspiring, recognizing and encouraging citizens to seek ways to engage in their community. It is about meeting society’s challenges not as isolated individuals, but as members of a united community.
