Today is the start of National Volunteer Week dedicated to inspiring, recognizing and encouraging people to seek out imaginative ways to engage in their communities. EMERGENCY USA is using this week to show our appreciation for our volunteers across the nation and their contributions to our work of promoting human rights and delivering healthcare to those affected by conflict around the world.
