United We Serve

United We Serve - Non Profit Consulting and Training - Wendy Biro-Pollard
On June 17th, President Obama announced a new initiative to encourage service in America, United We Serve, and asked Americans of all ages to volunteer over the summer.

“I’m calling on all of you to make volunteerism and community service part of your daily life and the life of this nation,” said President Obama in a video release. “And when I say ‘all,’ I mean everyone young and old, from every background, all across this country. We need individuals, community organizations, corporations, foundations, and our government to be part of this effort.”
