Celebrate Volunteers - Save the Date!

The Volunteer Center will salute volunteers from all parts of the county at its annual Celebrate Volunteers recognition event on Wednesday, April 10.  Join us at the Bergen Community College’s Moses Meeting and Training Center, TEC 128 for a networking dessert social at 6:00 pm followed by an inspiring program highlighting the extraordinary ways that volunteers enhance our community at 7:00 pm.  Brenda Blackmon, popular news anchor for My 9 News, will serve as Master of Ceremonies.
Public and private non-profit organizations, hospitals, libraries, religious organizations and schools in Bergen County are invited to bring volunteers they would like to honor, along with staff, to this non-competitive, community-wide event.
Each organization can choose to honor its top volunteers based on its own criteria for determining exemplary volunteer achievement, such as impact, dedication, hours served and loyalty.  Reservations are on a first come, first served basis, and are due by April 1st.   The cost is $12.00 per person.  Call (201) 489-9454 ext. 127 to reserve a place.
“This event is a great way for organizations to honor their volunteers,” explains Janet Sharma, the Volunteer Center’s executive director.  “Hundreds of volunteers will be honored and receive a public ‘pat on the back’ for their good work.  At the same time, agencies can save themselves the expense of hosting a separate event to salute their volunteers.”
