Season of Giving: Transforming Communities Through Service

Dec 8, 2020

On day 9 of 9, we want to thank you for following along with us over the past few weeks. We hope you have found inspiration and tools to increase your civic engagement at a time when the world needs it the most. On our last day, we are shining a light on Service. Points of Light promotes national service, like AmeriCorps and AmeriCorps Seniors, because it unites our country, advances our workforce, helps address the needs of underserved communities and transforms lives.  

As part of The George H.W. Bush Points of Light Awards Celebration, Points of Light created the Inspiration Honor Roll. The Awards honor individuals demonstrating the transformative power of service, and the Inspiration Honor Roll recognizes both acts of kindness and service that demonstrate the light that individuals bring to their communities around the world. 

As part of the Inspiration Honor Roll, we featured 15 inspiring individuals as Inspiration Spotlights. We recognized Steve Delman and Ava Reinfeld as Inspiration Spotlights for their service to their community as Senior Corps RSVP volunteers. They have gone above and beyond since the pandemic started, delivering over 109 meals to isolated older adults. Learn more about their twice weekly hot meal deliveries and our other Inspiration Spotlights on our YouTube channel.

Whether big or small, your service to the community has a tangible impact on the lives of your neighbors, friends and family. Points of Light is dedicated to empowering people to stand up, take action and accelerate change within their communities. We do this work year-around and invite you to continue following along with us on social media to see daily stories of hope and inspiration and to share our work with your network. Together, we have the power to create transformative change.
