City of Richmond's Impact Volunteering Program is Branded!

Richmond, California - Since spring of this year, the City of Richmond has been in the process of planning to implement the Cities of Service® impact volunteering program model in our City.  Cities of Service® seeks to meet priority needs through impact volunteering:  a volunteer strategy that targets a community’s priority needs, uses best practices, and sets clear outcomes for measurable results. 

This fall, the community and local high school students were invited to help name and locally brand the Richmond’s impact volunteering program. 

On Tuesday, November 20, 2012, Mayor Gayle McLaughlin and Richmond City Councilmembers recognized the winners of the name and logo design contests for the City of Richmond’s impact volunteering program. 

Among the top three program names listed on the ballot, ESC - Excellence Serving our Community,received the top vote of 130.  Imani Davis, local resident and volunteer for Richmond’s Literacy for Every Adult Project (LEAP), submitted the winning program name entry. 

Eighteen talented students from the Art and Multimedia Academies at Kennedy and Richmond High Schools submitted logo designs for the impact volunteering program.  The logo design submitted by 17 year-old Richmond High School student, Victor Castro Gomez, was chosen by the panel of judges.
