Day of Recognition at Nationals Park

It was a fun-filled night at Nationals’ Stadium on April 9th as AmeriCorps members celebrated National Mayors’ Day of Recognition for National Service. Five AmeriCorps members that volunteer for DC Habitat for Humanity attended the game and cheered on as the Nationals held on to a slim lead for a win against the Chicago White Sox. They were joined by AmeriCorps members across the District as CNCS, the Mayor’s office, and the Washington Nationals, collaborated to say “Thanks!” to a group of young and old members that choose to serve their country through volunteer service in community organizations. AmeriCorps members target issues that span from literacy, the digital divide, early childhood education and college enrollment to veteran support, employment, homelessness and hunger, among others. These jobs are challenging, impactful, and necessary. With a heartfelt thank you, we recognize all past and present AmeriCorps volunteers that serve through national service. Go Nats!
