About Volunteer Recognition Day

When is Volunteer Recognition Day? This holiday is always observed on April 20

Volunteer Recognition Day, an April 3 holiday exists to honor the legions of volunteers who dedicate themselves to causes and helping others. They are making big and small differences in the lives of millions of people all over the world. Volunteers save lives. They improve lives and provide care and comfort. They assist people, animals, and nature.

Most volunteers do not ask for recognition. They just want to help and to “give back” where they can.

In documenting special and unique days, this author attempts to avoid editorializing and keeps to reporting the facts. But, I will step away from the norm when speaking about this topic. It is vital and essential that more people get involved. There are so many groups and causes that need volunteer efforts. And, the needs are so broad and urgent, that everyone can find someplace to volunteer and make a difference.

BTW: Volunteers are keeping a big secret from those that don’t volunteer. Volunteer activities are energizing and rewarding. And, it is lots of fun and camaraderie. Try it and you will see!
