OLYMPIA – Serve Washington is now accepting story submissions to recognize and celebrate volunteers and helpers in communities across Washington. This project honors formal and informal volunteerism and strives to highlight the many ways Washingtonians supported our communities and state by contributing their time and talent in 2021.
Anyone, of any age can submit a volunteer or ‘community helper’ story for this recognition. Stories may capture any form of volunteerism: neighbors helping neighbors, AmeriCorps, AmeriCorps Seniors or other national service, and those who helped meet the challenges that 2021 presented. Serve Washington will honor and recognize the service of these individuals, groups, or organizations by highlighting selected stories on Serve Washington’s social media during National Volunteer Week, April 17-23, 2022.
Anyone may submit a story through the online submission form, unless they request or need alternative format accommodations, until 5 p.m., March 18, 2022.
Serve Washington, the bipartisan governor-appointed commission on national and community service, provides leadership and vision alongside local volunteer organizations, civic and community groups and units of government to make service a part of the lives of all Washingtonians.
