A community-wide celebration of volunteerism took place to kick off National Volunteer Month, which begins in April.

Volunteer New York’s "2017 Volunteer Spirit Awards" Ceremony was held at the Westchester Marriott Friday morning in Tarrytown.

Eight awards were presented to individuals and groups honoring their outstanding volunteer efforts and the impact they've had in the community.

“I hope many more teens will get into volunteering, even once a month is better than nothing because any little bit helps,” said Noah Cohen, a New Rochelle teen who was honored.”

“Volunteering is a very special thing because you're not asking for anything in return, but doing it because people need help,” added Tim Clark, another honoree from Croton-on-Hudson.

This was the 37th annual volunteer recognition event hosted by Volunteer New York, and the largest volunteer recognition event in Westchester.
