the junction where the arts and community meet

Volunteer

Thank you to all our volunteers!

It’s National Volunteer Week, and this year the value and importance of those who give of their time to help others has an added resonance as the world suffers from the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. From those on the front lines, to those helping their local communities, recognizing the work of volunteers is perhaps more important than ever.

As part of National Volunteer Week, the West Windsor Arts Council is also honoring five very dedicated individuals who went above and beyond in service this past year, awarding them the Volunteers of the Year award.  Chris Mittendorf of Plainsboro and Maureen Connolly-Hersh of West Windsor are recognized for their high-level commitment to both the arts and to the community. High school students Zia Ostawal, Julia Kundu and Anika Kapoor are recognized for the hours they have given to the Arts Council and for their steadfast readiness to help.

Over 120 dedicated and energetic individuals make up the volunteer roles at the West Windsor Arts Council. These folks share their time and skills in service of transforming the world around us through the arts. WWAC volunteers help in many ways from organizing and running exhibitions, to event support, fundraising, serving on advisory committees, and by providing leadership through board membership. Day in and day out, each individual’s contributions are greatly appreciated and valued.
