Ogden City received an award for volunteerism at the annual United Way Bravo Awards on June 5, 2019, and continually tops national lists for volunteerism efforts. The City is always looking for ways to improve its community through partnerships with businesses, non-profits, civic groups and schools, while providing volunteer opportunities that help create a better place for those who live, work and play here.
Last year, just over 3,600 volunteers gave over 15,000 hours to make over 340 projects possible. They brought beauty to the City by helping to remove over 105 tons of debris, clean local parks and trail systems, paint fire hydrants and even help neighbors with yard work and minor home repairs through events like Make a Difference Week. Ogden downtown and community culture also wouldn't be what it is without the local volunteers that support annual events like the Ogden Christmas Village, the Ogden Marathon, the Ogden Twilight concerts and recently the Spike 150 celebration that brought an estimated 100,000 people through the City over a three-day period to experience its history.
Ogden and its citizens are the embodiment of the idea that the best gift you can give is your time, service and talents. The City is proud of this accomplishment and appreciates each and every volunteer that supports the success of these projects.
