"I'm incredibly proud, but not surprised, to see hundreds of my California colleagues recognized for their volunteer service," said Ken McNeely, President of AT&T California. "When we hire at AT&T, we look for people who are as passionate about their communities as they are about their work, because we know that businesses can't succeed without strong communities. The thousands of AT&T employees nationwide who have received this honor are a testament to our company's core values."

Established in 2003, the PVSA gives Presidential recognition to U.S. citizens who have demonstrated a sustained commitment to volunteer service each year. This achievement is a way to inspire others to contribute to their communities through volunteer service and to make volunteer service a central part of their lives. The PVSA is issued by the President's Council on Service and Civic Participation, a group created by President George W. Bush to recognize the valuable contributions volunteers make to our Nation.  This year the Council is Chaired by two-time Super Bowl Champion Darrell Green, and former U.S. Senators Bob Dole and John Glenn as honorary co-chairs. The Council is composed of leaders in government, media, education, entertainment, business, nonprofit and volunteer service organizations, in addition to individual community volunteers.

AT&T is a Certifying Organization for the President's Volunteer Service Award and is responsible for verifying AT&T employee service hours, nominating potential recipients and delivering the Award.

To be eligible to receive the award, AT&T submits a record of employees' annual volunteer service hours to be verified and considered eligible for the award.  AT&T employees are eligible after 100 hours of annual volunteer work.
