(Youngstown, Ohio) The Spano Foundation is proud to announce that it will continue the tradition of awarding of the Presidential Volunteer Service Award (PVSA) in the Mahoning Valley. The Foundation will be the presenting organization for the future of this award by teaming up with Brenda Rider, who will continue to lead the charge. Since 2010, Ms. Rider has been presenting the Presidential Volunteer Service Award to Mahoning Valley volunteers and organizations.
“It’s very important to continue the tradition and recognize the kindness of others. So many volunteers work quietly to make a difference and the PVSA honors just that,” stated Brenda Rider.
The purpose for the Presidential Volunteer Service Award is to honor the hundreds of thousands of people across America that have volunteered hundreds, if not thousands of volunteer hours over their lifetime. The program was established to honor the volunteer works of individuals, families and organizations throughout the United States.
“We are very excited and honored to be able to continue the tradition and partner with Brenda to continue what she has started. She is an extraordinary woman that keeps giving back to our community and we are here to support this program in every way possible,” stated Anthony Spano, founder/executive director of the Spano Foundation.
The Foundation hopes to continue to recognize all the wonderful volunteers who are so giving of their time for the betterment of our community in the future.
