National Volunteer Week is April 15-21, 2018.

In honor of National Volunteer Week, many Hudson Valley charities, groups, and organizations are holding events to get the community involved in volunteering. The Hudson Valley is filled with some amazing non-profit groups, and the best way to celebrate the week is to volunteer in our communities.

Here are some of the organizations and events going on, as found on United Way of the Dutchess-Orange Region, for National Volunteer Week:

Hudson Valley Seed

There are plenty of other volunteer events going on in the Hudson Valley region to celebrate National Volunteer Week. Whether you help with one of these or something else, I hope you get out and volunteer in our community.
