Dozens of Citrus Heights volunteers were honored at the April 11 City Council meeting during National Volunteer Week.

CITRUS HEIGHTS, CA (MPG) - The City of Citrus Heights recently honored the numerous volunteers who assist with various programs and services throughout the city. Volunteers help at City Hall, the Community Center, the Police Department, the Planning Commission, the Construction Board, the Library, and many other organizations.
Just at City Hall, the Community Center, and the Police Department, volunteer hours totaled 20, 681 — which saved the City a total of $417,481.14.
Mayor Jeannie Bruins issued a proclamation recognizing the week of April 7 – April 13 as National Volunteer Week. Cities across the nation spent the week honoring the millions of hours volunteers give to enrich their communities.
Mayor Bruins thanked the volunteers for everything they give to the city, stating, “These people are precious to us, and so I think acknowledging you in this fashion once a year is the very least we can do.”
