What is it?
The Merced County Volunteer Recognition Program, established by the Merced County Board of Supervisors on November 2, 1999, provides an opportunity for recognizing groups or individual volunteers of Merced County for their contribution and dedication within our communities.
Recognizing the greatest gift a person gives is one’s self and one’s time, it is important that our Board promote the value and appreciation of volunteer involvement through the recognition of volunteers who, for a prolonged period of time, have made significant contributions and enhanced the quality of the community of Merced County.
Volunteers are an essential part of the community.
Residents are encouraged to nominate groups or individuals who exemplify the volunteer spirit and have made outstanding contributions throughout the year.
Honor a volunteer who made a difference in your life.
The awards are based on service given above and beyond the job asked of them, enhanced the quality of the community program, and service rendered for longevity.
Volunteers, who will be selected by committee, will be recognized at a regular Board of Supervisors meeting during National Volunteer Week.
The Merced County Board of Supervisors would like to extend a special thanks to all the volunteers in the community.
