Racine, WI– State Representative Greta Neubauer (D-Racine) joined thousands of state and local leaders across the country in a nationwide bipartisan initiative to highlight the impact of national service in tackling local problems.
“National service members are a critical part of the Racine community,” said Rep. Neubauer “AmeriCorps members and Senior Corps volunteers make our community safer, stronger, and healthier. I was honored to attend UW Parkside’s event celebrating the hard work of our national service members. Thank you to all of our AmeriCorps and Senior Corps members and volunteers – you make Racine a better place to live.”
“Our Racine-area national service members show the best of the Wisconsin spirit – people turning toward problems instead of away, collaborating to find community-oriented solutions and move ‘FORWARD’ together,” said Rep. Neubauer.
Rep. Neubauer participated in UW Parkside’s morning reception honoring national service members participating in AmeriCorps, AmeriCorps VISTA, Senior Corps, and Senior Corps RSVP.
In an era where public funding is often scarce, many communities are turning to national service members and volunteer programs as a way to meet local needs, boost our communities, and build stronger neighborhoods. More than 500 national service members and volunteers have stepped up to serve Southeastern Wisconsin.
National Service Recognition Day is a nationwide bipartisan effort to recognize the positive impact of national service, to thank those who serve, and to encourage more citizens to give back to their communities. This day is sponsored by the Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS), the National League of Cities, the National Association of Counties, and Cities of Service.
