WORCESTER – With it being National Volunteer Week, the City of Worcester will honor more than 300 volunteers ahead of tonight’s City Council meeting.

A Volunteer Recognition event will take place at 5:30 PM in the Levi Lincoln Chamber at City Hall to recognize and thank all of the volunteers that work tirelessly in the name of public service. 

“The City could not possibly complete all of this work without the support and tireless energy of each of these individuals,” said City Manager Edward M. Augustus Jr.

Here is some of the work accomplished by volunteers to be honored on Tuesday evening: 

  • Serving on the City’s boards and commissions, providing citizen representation on matters related to municipal affairs and social rights.
  • Serving within the public libraries, shelving books, organizing book sales and working at the library café.
  • Serving in City parks, picking up debris, mowing and raking the grass, trimming bushes and cleaning memorials.

  • Maintaining and cleaning sports fields and managing youth football, soccer and baseball leagues so that thousands of youth in the community are able to partake in seasonal sports activities.
  • Painting, cleaning, planting and removing snow and debris from neighborhoods to make them clean and inviting.
