City of Berkley Recognizes and Declares the Week of April 17 – April 23 as Volunteer Week

Throughout the history of the United States, the State of Michigan, and right here in the City of Berkley, citizens have actively volunteered their time, talent, and energy to improve the community.

Volunteers in Berkley enhance the quality of life of others by volunteering with service organizations, in schools, places of worship, hospitals, youth groups, as members of community boards, and with other organizations that benefit our community. Volunteer service has been needed more than ever since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, with many individuals stepping up to assist others in need. The spirit of volunteerism grows stronger in the face of even the most challenging situations.

National Volunteer Week was established 48 years ago in 1974 by President Nixon, as a special time to recognize the amazing contributions of volunteers.

The Berkley City Council extends their immense gratitude to the many Berkley volunteers that devote countless hours each year to enhance and uplift our entire community.
