May 8 to 15 is AmeriCorps Week. AmeriCorps week is a recruitment and recognition event designed to bring more Americans into service, salute AmeriCorps members and alums for their powerful impact, and thank the community partners who make AmeriCorps possible.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank the Connections Members and their host organizations for participating in SAGA's AmeriCorps program and for continuing to provide needed services in our communities. We thank you this week and every week for your commitment to serving others.
