Presidential Proclamation 2017:

“According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, more than 60 million Americans volunteered in 2015, giving an estimated $184 billion in service to their communities. The latest data shows that our Nation's seniors lead the way in time spent volunteering, and we are immensely thankful for their commitment. Our busy adults aged 35 to 54 volunteer at the highest rates, and our communities depend on their continued involvement. Our Nation continues to build a culture of service—the volunteer rate among our teenagers has steadily climbed over the past several years.”
