The Presidentâ€™s Volunteer Service Award (PVSA) is our countryâ€™s premier volunteer award program encouraging citizens to live a life of service through a national recognition. The award is presented through the office of the President of the United States and the Elks Drug Awareness Program. The award encourages you to take a look around, be inspired and take positive action that changes the world.
The Elks Drug Awareness Program presents the lifetime PVSA to an adult who has volunteered 4,000 or more hours over their lifetime. To date, more than 2,000 volunteers nationwide have been recognized for their service. One of the members of the Orange Elks Lodge #1475 has achieved this. He has totaled over 4000 hours.
A few of the programs he works on are the lodges Drug Awareness Program, the Gang Reduction & Intervention Partnership by hosting the GRIP Soccer Camp Lunches, the National Night Out, the Down Syndrome Association of Orange County Family Picnic, Red Carpet Ball, Youth Mixer and the Buddy Walk.
