The Anthony V. Spano Foundation is proud to announce that it will continue the tradition of awarding of the Presidential Volunteer Service Award (PVSA) in the Valley. The Foundation has been Certified to administer the President’s Volunteer Service award. It 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, this award has been presented to Mahoning Valley volunteers and organizations.
The Spano Foundation and its committee will be responsible for verifying the criteria for delivering the Presidential Volunteer Service Award to honor its volunteers with the one of the highest honors – Presidential recognition.
Any individual, family, or group can receive Presidential recognition for their commitment to volunteer service. Service usually springs from selflessness, but the President of the United States wanted to recognize volunteers just the same. That’s why the Presidential Volunteer Service Award was created, a national honor offered in recognition of sustained service.
President George W. Bush created the President’s Council on Service and Civic Participation in 2003 to help recognize the valuable contributions volunteers are making to our Nation. Chaired by two-time Super Bowl champion Darrell Green, with former U.S. Senators Robert Dole and John Glenn serving as honorary co-chairs, the Council includes leaders from government, business, media, entertainment, education, and nonprofit, volunteer service and community organizations.
