Additional resources including logos, web banners, and customizable event materials are available on our Mayors Day of Recognition for National Service resources webpage. Also, we can provide a National Service City Profile showing data on programs, participants, and investments in your city. To receive your City Profile, please contact the CNCS State Director in your state.
We hope these materials are helpful.
