Mecklenburg County celebrated our volunteers on April 15 with a reception in the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Government Center atrium.
This annual event was sponsored by Jim N Nick’s BBQ, Pinckney Marketing, and Customer Service Solutions. More than 50 volunteers, members of the Staff Volunteer Council, and Hands on Charlotte attended the Board of County Commissioners meeting, then returned to the atrium for fellowship, dinner and appreciation gifts.
In addition to those who volunteer directly with County departments/agencies and through the volunteer program in partnership with Hands on Charlotte, nearly 300 residents currently serve on 41 Board-appointed advisory committees.
The volunteer program is one aspect of MeckConnect, Mecklenburg County’s multifaceted strategy for increasing and enhancing citizen involvement.
