National Volunteer Week, 2019


By the President of the United States of America

A Proclamation

During National Volunteer Week, we acknowledge the many Americans who generously give their time and talents to help improve the lives of others.  Their acts of kindness help build a better and brighter future, and remind us that we all have a role to play in making our communities safer, healthier, and stronger.

America’s strength has always come from the acts of ordinary citizens.  From the earliest days of our Nation, volunteers have stepped forward to serve, helping us survive our greatest challenges and achieve our greatest triumphs.  Every day, through their volunteerism, millions of our citizens renew this ethic of service, which is fundamental to our Nation’s character and exemplifies the resolve of the American people.
