National Volunteer Week is April 19-25 and an opportunity to celebrate the contributions volunteers. Roseville is fortunate to have thousands of volunteers who help make our city a great place to live, work and play.
In 2019, more than 2,175 volunteers recorded in excess of 6,500 hours of service to the City of Roseville.
Volunteers are extraordinary. Research has shown that volunteers donate to charity at twice the rate as non-volunteers. Parents volunteer at rates nearly 48 percent higher than non-parents, and working mothers give more time than any other demographic, with a volunteer rate of 46.7 percent.
Volunteers engage in their communities at higher rates than non-volunteers. They more frequently talk to neighbors, participate in civic organizations, fix things in the community, attend public meetings, discuss local issues with family and friends, do favors for neighbors and vote in local elections.
A few of the ways volunteers help in Roseville include organizing special events, protecting Roseville’s natural resources, providing administrative support, serving on commissions and so much more.
