STUDENTS MAKE A DIFFERENCE DAY

 

Whereas,      the youth of our nation are its future; and

 

Whereas,     working together to help others bridges the differences that separate Americans and strengthen the bonds that tie us together; and

 

Whereas,      we, the American people have a tradition of philanthropy and volunteerism, and

 

Whereas,      many of our citizens need the help of others to live happy and productive lives; and

 

Whereas,      millions of individuals have already enhanced the lives of others on this annual day of doing good by giving where there was a need, rebuilding what had been torn down, teaching where there was a desire to learn, and inspiring those who had lost hope; and

 

Whereas,      USA WEEKEND Magazine and its affiliate newspapers and The Points of Light Foundation and its affiliate volunteer centers have joined to promote an annual national day of doing good that celebrates and strengthens the spirit of volunteer service; and

 

Whereas,      volunteer services is an investment in the future we all must share;

 

Now, Therefore,     we, the Albemarle County Board of Supervisors, do hereby proclaim
