Every day across our country, millions of Americans take time away from their work, their studies, and their families to give back to their communities. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, 26.8% of the American population volunteered through or for an organization at least once between September 2008 and September 2009.
We wholeheartedly welcome your organization to be part of Philadelphia's coordinated strategy to harness and focus the energies of our citizens to the areas of greatest local need.
