National Volunteer Week & Facebook Challenge

April 13th, 2018

Next week, April 15-21st, is National Volunteer Week!

The theme for National Volunteer Week is Celebrate Service – an opportunity to shine a light on the people and causes that inspire us to serve. Volunteerism empowers individuals to find their purpose, to take their passion and turn it into meaningful change.

As part of National Volunteer week, our partners at Alpine Bank are hosting a Facebook challenge for a few local nonprofits. In  honor of Alpine Bank’s 45th Anniversary and in celebration of National Volunteer week, April 15th – April 21st, they are offering us a chance to win $4,500!  We are asking our volunteers to post a photo of themselves holding a sign.
