Thanks for Honoring those
who #GetThingsDone
during AmeriCorps Week

Thanks to you, the country celebrated the commitment of the millions of Americans who have chosen to serve their country through AmeriCorps and AmeriCorps Seniors. News outlets, community leaders, elected officials and even the Second Gentleman took time to stop and thank AmeriCorps members and volunteers. From proclamations declaring AmeriCorps Week to site visits to Day of the A, you made this week possible. Even the US Senate celebrated national service efforts. 

There were so many creative Day of the A pictures this year. From puzzle pieces to tree carvings, you really brought your ‘A game.’ Check out Our House’s picture above.
