AmeriCorps Week provides an opportunity for Delaware’s 110 AmeriCorps members, alums, grantees, program partners, and friends to shine a spotlight on the work done by members — and to motivate more individuals to join AmeriCorps or to volunteer in their communities.
In advance of the third annual Delaware Week of Service April 15-21, Gov. Markell joins first lady Carla Markell in calling on Delawareans to plan or find special volunteer projects, and for nonprofit organizations to register their volunteer needs .
New Delaware Senior Legal Hotline Will Help Older Delawareans Get Free Advice and Ensure Their Rights
Advice will be provided by either a Delaware Volunteer Legal Services staff attorney or volunteer attorneys. If the issue requires more than advice, the caller will be screened for free legal services and, if eligible, will be referred to Community Legal Aid Society (CLASI), Delaware Volunteer Legal Services (DVLS) or the Legal Services Corporation of Delaware (LSCD). There are no income requirements for the hotline.
“Carla and I believe there is no greater service than to serve our fellow Delawareans and neighbors,” Gov. Markell said. “This year’s Volunteer Service Awards recipients truly embody that spirit of altruism. They also demonstrate the power of giving and the ability to inspire others to do the same. With deep gratitude, we honor their leadership, commitment and dedication.”
