hands raised in the air

Bentonville, AR…Mayor Bob McCaslin is pleased to announce the City of Bentonville has been named a Volunteer Community of the Year for the eighth consecutive year. This honor was achieved due to the generosity of a combined 23,522 volunteers from 49 partner organizations who volunteered 400,601 hours. These hours are valued at over $9.6 million and represent a generous gift to our community.

This award is sponsored by the Governor’s Office, the Arkansas Municipal League, and the Arkansas Department of Human Services Division of Community Service and Non-Profit Support. The Arkansas Department of Transportation provides signs publicizing the Arkansas Volunteer Community of the Year designation. The signs are placed at prominent locations along highways outside of the winning cities. A recognition luncheon will take place during the Arkansas Municipal League’s winter conference that will be held in Ft. Smith in January.

A panel of citizens from across the state served on the selection committee. Joining Bentonville with this recognition is Benton, Clarkridge, Clarksville, Everton, Fort Smith, Greenbrier, Jonesboro, Marianna, Mountain Home, Siloam Springs and Van Buren.

The Arkansas Department of Human Services Division of Community Service and Nonprofit Support promotes and supports volunteerism in the private, non-profit and governmental sectors as a means of enhancing the quality of life for all Arkansans.
