National Volunteer Appreciation Week

Today is National Volunteer Appreciation Day, the last day of a whole week devoted to thanking and appreciating those who volunteer in their communities and abroad, helping those in need!

There are many non-profit organizations nationwide where volunteers gather and organize to go out into their communities, helping where needed. The YMCA is the largest non-profit community service organization in America. According to YMCA-USA, “the Y engages more than 10,000 neighborhoods across the U.S. As the nation’s leading nonprofit committed to helping people and communities to learn, grow and thrive, their contributions are both far-reaching and intimate—from influencing our nation’s culture during times of profound social change to the individual support they provide an adult learning to read.”  The amazing help the YMCA provides to communities nationwide would not be possible without the thousands of volunteers that come through YMCAs in every state.

Here at Tag UR It! inc., we are very proud to work with many YMCA associations and branches nationwide providing name tags and awards which recognize not only the accomplishments of athletes but also the hard work of many volunteers.

For non-profit organizations both large and small, taking the time to recognize the tireless work of the volunteers helping you reach your goals is monumental. There are many ways to let your volunteers know just how much their work means to your organization and the community they are helping. A simple “thank you” can boost the spirits of volunteers and excite them to work harder and push even further.

One way organizations recognize their volunteers is through recognition awards, either perpetually displayed in their headquarters or smaller awards given monthly or quarterly to a volunteer who has truly gone above and beyond. Our 4″ x 6″ recognition awards are the perfect smaller individual plaque to award to a distinguished member of your volunteer team. These classic yet classy plaques are available in multiple wood and metal faceplate finishes The wood options include walnut, black, black and rosewood piano finish, and more. The most common faceplates include silver, gold, or white sublimated in full color with photo or logo.

Another award option is our perpetual plaque. With this option, your organization would have one large plaque displayed in your headquarters. Each month, quarter, or year you would send us  the name of the most recent recipient and we would sent you a newly engraved perpetual plate to add to your plaque.

Regardless of how you thank you volunteers, take a moment to let them know how appreciated they are today!

We hope all organizations, large and small, are able to find the perfect way to say “thank you” to their volunteers today!
