On Oct. 29, the Volunteer Center of Sacramento recognized the Sacramento California Stake with the 2010 Volunteer Spirit Award as the Civic Organization of the Year. The award is presented to a service and/or faith based organization that has made a significant contribution to the community.
The Sacramento California Stake was recognized for its Mormon Helping Hands project that took place on May 8, 2010. During this Project, 750 volunteers of all ages assisted in an intense and complex renovation of William Land Park, the largest and most utilized park in the City of Sacramento.
The award was presented to John Cassinat, president of the Sacramento California Stake, at an awards ceremony held on October 29. President Cassinat was pleased to accept the award on behalf of all the members of the stake, saying, "This is a great tribute to the many members of the stake that served selflessly with no expectation of such a wonderful recognition for their hard work."
