National Volunteer Week starts on April 23 and there are so many different ways to give back to your community.

Given the opportunity to pay it forward, would you? Do you think about or act on volunteering in any way possible.

Did you know that National Volunteer Week was established in 1974? In the last few decades, it’s been managed by the Points of Light organization.

Did you also know that in Connecticut more than 80% of all fire personnel are volunteers, and the an extremely high number of fire departments throughout the state are experiencing a volunteer shortage. Numerous volunteer fire departments around Connecticut will celebrate the start of National Volunteer Week, which this year is April 23 – April 29, by holding open houses.

To go hand in hand with the movement of volunteerism and the great need for volunteer firefighters in the state, the Everyday Hero CT campaign was designed by the International Fire Chiefs Association. The two-year initiative is part of the Volunteer Workforce Solutions that addresses the shortage of volunteer firefighters in Connecticut.

Volunteers in all walks of life are the life blood of various organizations, please consider being a part of this amazing force.
