2018 Spirit of Volunteerism Awards Impact Report
As OneOC celebrates 60 years of serving Orange County, the 2018 Spirit of Volunteerism Awards also took a look back at how volunteerism has shaped our community over the past few decades. We’d like to take the opportunity to thank the volunteers who have made an impact in our community, as well as our sponsors or their generous support. Without them, none of it would have been possible.
On April 26, 2018, the 42nd Annual Spirit of Volunteerism Awards:
- Honored 359 outstanding volunteers (click here to visit the Spirit of Volunteerism Honoree Blog) from 95 local nonprofits and 30 companies
- Gathered 1,109 Orange County community members together in celebration of volunteerism
- Presented the prestigious Giving is Living Award to 2 amazing organizations working in partnership to feed and help those in need during the holiday season, The Orange County Food Bank (a program of Community Action Partnership of Orange County) and PIMCO: Click here to learn more about the Giving is Living Award
