Salesianum junior and longtime Success Won’t Wait literacy volunteer Vincenzo Carrieri-Russo receives the President’s Volunteer Service Award

Vincenzo Carrieri-Russo, Success Won't Wait volunteerSince its founding in 2002, Success Won’t Wait has been privileged to work with many outstanding volunteers. These volunteers commit an extraordinary number of hours toward furthering the SWW mission — and often through the plain, hard work of sorting, repairing and labeling thousands of books.

One of these longtime volunteers is Vincenzo Carrieri-Russo. Vincenzo has been a volunteer for many years and has pitched in wherever and whenever he was needed – from manning book drives, to delivering book baskets, to putting hundreds of children’s books in locations like St. Anthony’s School – Vincenzo has done it all!

So, we are pleased to announce that this outstanding volunteer has been recognized with the President’s Volunteer Service Award http://www.presidentialserviceawards.gov/ for completing over 100 community service hours in a single year!

The President’s Council on Service and Civic Participation, established in 2003, created the President’s Volunteer Service Award program as a way to thank and honor Americans who, by their demonstrated commitment and example, inspire others to engage in volunteer service.

Congratulations to Vincenzo and our heartfelt thanks for all that you do!
