The Volunteer Appreciation Gala is hosted by the City of Jonesboro to celebrate community volunteers for their dedication to our local organizations and community. Every year nonprofit organizations submit thousands of volunteer hours and the names of the volunteers they wish to be recognized at the event. In 2014, the first Gala was hosted to appreciate residents involvement in north Jonesboro, since then the event morphed into a much anticipated celebration for volunteers, participating organizations, sponsors, and the City. Our wonderful sponsors make this event possible.
A Volunteer of the Year is awarded for the dedication and commitment demonstrated, the impact and benefit to the organization and local community, and charitable activities. Other eligibility criteria detailed in the nomination form.
