Arkansas Volunteer Communities of the Year Announced

Twelve communities have been selected to receive the 2016 Arkansas Volunteer Community of the Year Award.  Chosen to receive recognition for their volunteer efforts were: Benton, Bentonville, Cherokee Village, Clarkridge, Fayetteville, Greenbrier, Heber Springs, Little Rock, Maumelle, McNeil, Mountain Home, and Van Buren.  

A panel of citizens from across the state served on the selection committee. Some of the recipients have received the award in the past and some of this year’s recipients have never received the award. 

The award presentations will take place at the Arkansas Municipal League’s Winter Conference, which will be held January 11-13, 2017 in Little Rock.  The Arkansas Volunteer Community of the Year Awards is sponsored by the Governor’s Office, the Arkansas Municipal League, and the Arkansas Department of Human Services Division of Community Service and Nonprofit Support. The Arkansas Highway and Transportation Department provides signs announcing the Arkansas Volunteer Community of the Year designation. The signs are placed at prominent locations along highways outside of the winning cities.

See information about past winners here: http://humanservices.arkansas.gov/dcsns/Pages/VolunteerCommunityAwards.aspx.

The Arkansas Department of Human Services Division of Community Service and Nonprofit Support promotes and supports volunteerism in the private, nonprofit, and governmental sectors as a means of enhancing the quality of life for all Arkansans.
