Five Extraordinary Volunteers Honored with Daily Point of Light Award
ATLANTA, April 8, 2019 /3BL Media/ — Points of Light, in partnership with The UPS Foundation and TEGNA, celebrates National Volunteer Week, April 7-13, 2019, through volunteer recognition and service events around the country. Each year, National Volunteer Week is celebration of the power of volunteers to tackle society’s greatest challenges, to build stronger communities and be a force that transforms the world.
We celebrate International Women’s Day this year, as ever, with the launch of a wealth of new initiatives and commitments from companies, governments and civil society organizations. And yet, the pace of change is still too slow.
Cities around the world are growing more crowded every day, and this demographic shift is affecting quality of life in urban areas. At the same time, e-commerce is reshaping the way people live and work.
Customers have become accustomed to getting nearly anything they want, when and where they want it. The convergence of these two issues is creating challenges already evident in some cities: increased congestion, smog, and noise pollution.
