Save National Service! Make your Voice Heard!

Posted on September 9, 2011. Filed under: Volunteering is Hot! | Tags: |

National service programs are on the chopping block in Congress, their future in doubt. National Service brings vital resources to many of the social service organizations across the country and out community. National Service includes programs like AmeriCorps, RSVP and the Foster Grandparent Program. All programs under the Corporation for National and Community Service face devastating cuts in Congress in these tough times. But tough times are exactly when our nation should invest in these programs to create jobs, deliver results, and strengthen communities. That’s why Save Service is organizing a national Call Day on September 15. Together, we can make thousands of calls and ensure that our leaders understand that funding national service must be a priority. Pledge to call and show your support. September 15 is also the same day that hundreds of service leaders are coming to DC to meet with Members of Congress. Calls made the same day amplify our message and ensure that we won’t be ignored.
