Volunteer Services Takes On The Capitol!
February 26th, 2013
Children’s Volunteer Services joined the Minnesota Association for Volunteer Administration (MAVA) today in celebrating “Volunteer Day at the Capitol!”
Volunteers, volunteer administrators, and Minnesota supporters came out to remind legislators of the importance of volunteerism in our state!
Minnesota has 1.58 million volunteers annually who contribute 171.8 million total hours of service…which is valued at $3.7 billion!
Did you know that Minnesota was most recently ranked 4th in the country for volunteer rate, and that the Twin Cities ranked 1st in Minnesota metro areas? Our goal is for MN to be 1st among all states!
Thank you to OUR incredible volunteers. Your heart, passion, and positivity make an impact!
