NASW is a proud supporter of Give An Hour, an organization devoted to developing a national network of volunteers capable of responding to both acute and chronic conditions that arise within our society. Give An Hour focuses on U.S. troops and their loved ones who are currently being affect by the military conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan. Give an Hour asks mental health professionals, including social workers, to literally donate an hour of their time each week to provide free mental health services to military personnel and their families. For more information on Give An Hour, or to volunteer, please visit www.giveanhour.org.
NASW wants to spread the word about an important and EASY way for you to help Give an Hour this month. The organization has entered an online grant contest sponsored by Pepsi. In order to win the grant, they just need to be a top vote-getter in their category. Give An Hour is asking supporters to vote for their organization every day from now through the end of June.
