AmeriThanks! Recognizing Our AmeriCorps Programs For Their Impact On Our Community!
Updated: Apr 11
At The Area Agency on Aging-Five County, we are proud to host, not one, two or even three, but FOUR AmeriCorps programs! Our volunteers serving with these programs give their time to our Southwest Utah community in a variety of ways.
Those who serve with AmeriCorps are more than just volunteers, they are MEMBERS. Not only are they part of the program with which they serve locally, they are part of a National network of individuals, who provide similar services in their own communities, with the same mission and commitment to "GET THINGS DONE."
AmeriCorps Members play a valuable role in our ability to meet the needs of older adults, Veterans and individuals living with disabilities in our community. Volunteering offers vital help to people in need, worthwhile causes, and our local communities, but the benefits can be even greater for our Members. Not convinced? Check out this recent blog post to see what some of our Members are saying or watch the stories of some of our Members in this YouTube video.
This week, as AmeriCorps Members across the Nation are being recognized, for the value they add to the lives of those around them, we'd like to thank our Members for playing an important role in making our community a better place! We appreciate all they do and we want to thank each of them for their service!
THANK YOU, Senior Companions and Foster Grandparents!
THANK YOU, Retired and Senior Volunteer Program Members!
If you are ready to be a part of this National network of Members getting things done, we want you to join our team! All ages are welcome and we will provide all the training you need to start making a difference in the lives of older adults, Veterans, and those living with disabilities in our community.
