April 17-24: National Volunteer Week
THANK YOU to 105 Volunteers at Marine Parents!
Posted on 4/17/2022

April is National Volunteer Month, and the week of April 17 is National Volunteer Week. Each year, we take time out to recognize all of our incredible volunteers. We have 105 current volunteers who served 38,246 hours in 2021, each having completed 40+ hours of training and mentoring in order to begin working in our groups. The dedication to the Marine Corps from each of these individuals benefits thousands of families around the world.

The volunteers at are the heartbeat of the organization. Their work is unwavering and the giving of their time appears endless.
Tracy Della Vecchia, Founder and Executive Director

National Volunteer Week was established in 1974 by President Richard Nixon. This was done as a way to celebrate the hard work and dedication of volunteers. Each President since then has issued a proclamation during National Volunteer Week, and this has also been the case for many mayors and governors across the country. Since 1974, National Volunteer Week has not only been a celebration of the dedication of so many volunteers, but also a nationwide effort to encourage people to volunteer in their own communities. This year, National Volunteer Week is April 15-21, and during this time we ask you to join us in celebrating the hard work and dedication of our volunteers here at Marine Parents.

This organization could not exist if it were not for the contributions of hundreds of parents around the United States. Our volunteers have taken that one step further and contribute endless hours answering emails, moderating the social media groups, researching information, and supporting the parents, spouses, family and friends of our United States Marines.
