PIN was pleased to recognize volunteers in 5 award categories through a unique, local initiative supported by the Here to Help team that welcomed artists and photographers to submit art that ‘embodies community’. The winning submission ‘The Bridge that Connects Us’ by Christopher Cape was developed into the 2022 Volunteer Awards.
The value of contributing through volunteering is immense. “Acts of kindness, giving, volunteering” says Cusimano, “however personally defined, the generosity of spirit has impact. Across the country, right here at home and within ourselves. Together we can uplift our hearts, community and our sense of belonging through empathy in action.”
