The President’s Volunteer Service Award (PVSA) is a civil award bestowed by the president of the United States. Established by executive order of George W. Bush, the award honors volunteers that give hundreds of hours per year helping people in need.
       

The President’s Volunteer Service Award can be granted to individuals, families, and organizations located throughout the United States. Depending on the number of service hours completed, recipients can earn the Bronze, Silver, Gold, and/or the President’s Lifetime Achievement Award.
 
         

“The purpose for the President’s Volunteer Service Award is to honor those who volunteer hundreds, if not thousands of hours over their lifetime,” said Past District Governor Dr. Tulsi R. Maharjan of the Branchburg Rotary club. “Volunteers are the engine of every organization, community, state, and country. They truly help make a difference.”

According to Dr. Maharjan "Joe, John and Bill has found their passion and purpose in their life. For the past year and half they have worked many hours to collect funds, distribute food, establish food programs for Covid-19 victims, distributing and collecting food for many food pantries and raising $100,000s of thousands of funds for various veterans organization".
 
     
 
They have contributed more than 12,000 hrs of service to needy people around the Central New Jersey area. 
Joe Horner, Bill Stabile and John Shockley are a true testament of our Rotary's motto "SERVICE ABOVE SELF." They are always there to help others who needs to most help.  Congratulations to all winners.
