National Volunteer Week

April 21-25 is National Volunteer Week. The week recognizes that millions of people around the world give their time, talent and energy to help others

This and my visit to Hopi last week reminded me of our many volunteers, the Program Partners who live and work in the reservation communities we serve. They are employed by tribal programs such as senior programs, health programs, boys and girls clubs, schools, other nonprofits, and churches. More than 1,000 partners volunteer to work with NRC. Through our partnership, they enhance their skills, resources, and ability to better serve the participants of their programs. They ensure that our goods and services reach the people for which they are intended. They put in hundreds of hours and work tirelessly to ensure that needs in the communities are met. Without this dedicated team in the field, NRC would not be able to reach the people in remote reservation communities. Our partners make our work possible. We are only as effective as they are…

So this is just a big shout out from National Relief Charities to each and every one of our Program Partners:

We couldn’t do it without you!.

    Nowhere on this site can I find information on volunteering. I am a retired senior level marketing and communications executive living in Santa Fe, NM. I would like to help any of the local tribes, pueblos in their efforts to raise money, advance their issues and ideas, help families and children — whatever the need. Locals I have asked shrug their shoulders and say it is hard to help…

      Hi Peter, thanks for following the PWNA blog and thanks for your interest in volunteering. The majority of our work is done through program partners on the reservations we serve. To assist the pueblos in your area, please reach out directly to their Tribal Administrations and ask whether they need any volunteer support with grant-writing, fundraising or marketing. The Indian Pueblo Cultural Center there in Albuquerque has a website on each of the pueblos and includes some contact information to get you started! Here’s the link: http://www.indianpueblo.org/19-pueblos/pueblos/
