We are honored to have been selected as an official certifying organization for the Presidential Service Award. The Presidential Service Award was put in place to honor Americans that use their time, energy, talents, and compassion for others to make a difference in the world through volunteering. There are a variety of different ways a person can volunteer to serve others such as volunteering at a local hospital, nursing home, or animal shelter, collecting canned goods and clothes for the needy, helping an elderly neighbor run errands or rake leaves, leading Sunday School at church, or tutoring younger kids with their homework. An act of service is not only a gift for those receiving the help but is rewarding for the volunteer as well because it teaches compassion, patience, appreciation, and graciousness. This Award is a Presidential honor that recognizes the valuable contributions of volunteers nationwide who are answering President George W. Bush’s call to serve others through their current volunteer activities or lifetime service.

As a Certifying Organization, SNS will identify eligible recipients, verify their service hours, and distribute the Award to outstanding volunteers.
