CLEARWATER, Fla., April 07, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- On Tuesday the 12th of April in honor of National Volunteer Month, volunteers from Consumer Energy Solutions will be recognized for their volunteerism in the community at the Scientology Information Center in Downtown Clearwater for their tireless work in the community.
In the United States, National Volunteer Appreciation Month is celebrated in April. This month is dedicated to honoring all of the volunteers in our communities. National Volunteer Appreciation Month also encompasses National Volunteer Week (April 6th – 12th). President Richard Nixon established National Volunteer Week with an executive order in 1974, and every sitting U.S. president since Nixon has issued a proclamation during National Volunteer Week, urging Americans to give their time to community outreach organizations. During this time organizations all over the world are acknowledged for the efforts in the community in areas such as veterans groups, homeless groups, mentoring at risk youth, neighborhood clean ups and doing repairs for the elderly or disadvantaged.
Consumer Energy Solutions (CES) an energy consultant firm, established by Pat Clouden in 1999 created an office entirely dedicated to volunteerism. The staff in that office educate youth on the Truth About Drugs, help disadvantaged single families and nurture fledgling non-profit organizations. They also contribute to community gardening, neighborhood clean-ups, youth events in communities with at-risk youth, volunteering at the “4th Annual Clearwater Beach Chalk Festival” in October 2015, and collecting and purchasing toys for “Toys for Tots”. Recently they volunteered at the Coachman Park Easter Egg Hunt which was attended by thousands of people.
“We come from all different walks of life and cultural backgrounds, but when we meet and work on things that we all can agree with, we find that our differences are just insignificant,” said Lynn Posyton – CES Director of Community Relations, “In truly successful and beloved companies, corporate social responsibility (CSR) is always part of their mission. At CES we do our part to always work on our ‘HSR’! I like to call it Human Social Responsibility. After all, we are humankind and it is easy to tap into that agreement, no matter what differences we may have...we are all human! So we find projects that really help others and we are growing our volunteer group, by the day! It is very exciting to see the joy that it brings our staff!”
“The Church of Scientology recognizes the importance of volunteerism and supports groups that take actions in the community to improve the quality of life for all. This is something we feel is important based on the words of Scientology’s founder Mr. L. Ron Hubbard, ‘A community that pulls together can make a better society for all,’" stated Amber Skjelset, Manager, Scientology Information Center.
