On April 15th, Community Connect & Serve sent a letter to the editor of the Winchester Star. CFNSV joins them in thanking Winchester’s Mayor and City Council for proclaiming April 8th through 14th as City Volunteer Week. The link to the article is here.

The partners of Community Connect and Serve in the Northern Shenandoah Valley — Top of Virginia Regional Chamber, Valley Health, United Way of the Northern Shenandoah Valley, JustServe, Nonprofit Alliance of the Northern Shenandoah Valley, and Community Foundation Northern Shenandoah Valley — would like to express our gratitude for the April 9 mayoral proclamation establishing April 8-14 annually as City Volunteer Week.

My colleagues wish to thank Winchester Mayor John David Smith Jr. and City Council members for recognizing the importance and value of acknowledging the efforts of those who willingly volunteer their time, talents, and treasures. These three pillars form the foundation of giving and philanthropy while filling the gap in our society that neither government nor free enterprise can fill.

Community, Connect, and Serve partners are committed to developing an annual event to provide networking opportunities for local nonprofits to enhance outcomes for local families and children by strengthening relationships, providing better service, and enhancing accessibility to available resources. We would like to invite all community members to our 3rd Annual Event, Sept. 26 from 3-7 p.m.

We strive to build lasting relationships with the nonprofit community to enhance the quality of life in the community. Our team of partners are dedicated to spreading the awareness of purpose and a sense of community through volunteerism.

Thank you again for inviting us to celebrate National Volunteer Month by proclaiming City Volunteer Week
