The Eugene Police Department currently has 73 volunteers, who contributed 12,983 hours of service in 2017. On Wednesday, April 18, we will have a National Volunteer Week Celebration to honor our volunteers and their contributions in 2017.
Sponsored by the Points of Light Foundation, National Volunteer Week is about thanking one of America's most valuable assets – our volunteers – and calling the public's attention to all that they do to improve our communities. This year, NVW is April 15-21, when we recognize and distribute a variety of awards that are not issued at any other time, including President’s Volunteer Service Awards and Hours of Service Milestone Awards.
President's Volunteer Service Awards are the most prestigious volunteer awards currently connected to the White House that all Americans can aspire to achieve. The awards are issued for hours volunteered during a 12-month period (January through December). Volunteers who have contributed 100+ hours during that time frame will be receiving an award based on their annual hours of service (bronze, silver or gold).
