AmeriCorps workers from around the U.S. were recognized Feb. 28 for their contributions to the Perris community during a recent two-week stint in the City. Perris Mayor Michael Vargas and members of the City Council thanked the AmeriCorps team, who range from 18 to 23 years of age, for working in the community garden, completing nutrition-education classes and promoting healthy eating and active living at elementary campuses in Perris. Mayor Vargas read a proclamation in support of the 11 AmeriCorps workers and presented each one with a Certificate of Appreciation. AmeriCorps is a network of local, state, and national service programs that connects over 70,000 Americans each year in intensive service to meet community needs in education, the environment, public safety, health, and homeland security.
