Governor's Volunteer Awards
The annual Oregon Governor’s Volunteer Awards honors some of Oregon's most respected individuals and organizations for their commitment to voluntary service benefiting the state and its people. The awards are hosted by the Oregon Volunteers Commission for Voluntary Action and Service with presenting sponsor Wells Fargo. Awardees are recognized at the annual Oregon Governor’s Volunteer Awards Luncheon.
