> News From the Field
> U.S. House Again Tries to Eliminate AmeriCorps, VISTA & NCCC
> This week, the House Appropriations Committee released their funding bill that once
> again calls for dramatic cuts to the Corporation for National and Community Service
> (CNCS).  While it preserves funding for the three Senior Corps programs, the bill
> directs agency staff to shut down CNCS and eliminates all funding for vital programs
> such as AmeriCorps, the Volunteer Generation Fund, VISTA, the National Civilian 
> Community Corps, and the Social Innovation Fund. These programs have provided critical
> and countless benefits to communities nationwide, from education to nursing, infrastructure
> repair to disaster relief.  We need them now more than ever, and we need your voice
> to help protect their contributions. We've been here before and - with your help
> - we've fought back successfully, but it wasn't easy then and it won't be easy 
> now. Learn how you can take action to save service: http://bit.ly/oR1We5 [http://r20.rs6.net/tn.jsp?e=001yeKAhZg5sOOKKQ6GGqM65Ux24hhIHe5MZZZHyxzUSIeAefTGMIqiEsrMC0Fid0Ulv-cdWycsXkDPEtP96DGUoH_imh3V8jABalDai1-0zIA=]Action Heroes Needed This Summer!

> Everyday Young Heroes
> John-Henry Lambin
> Gardnerville, NV
> YSA recognizes eighteen-year-old John-Henry Lambin from Gardnerville, Nevada, as
> one of our Everyday Young Heroes.  John-Henry is a student at Western Nevada College
> and remains a constant source of inspiration through his selfless actions and dedication
> to others.
> So many people are able to attend college, spend time with family, and enjoy the
> leisure of everyday life.  John-Henry recognized these actions we take for granted
> as US citizens after a close friend enlisted in the Army.  Acknowledging the sacrifice
> of men and women soldiers in order to secure our freedoms, John-Henry created A 
> Touch of Home.  This program is a special way of saying thank you by sending packages
> containing items that are necessary as well as items that would remind them that
> they are loved!  In addition to the necessities, every box includes a stuffed bear
> or animal with a detailed letter that explains his mission.  A Touch of Hope has
> sent over 500 packages overseas to impact soldiers' lives as John-Henry expresses
> his gratitude with the support of his family and community.
> We honor John-Henry Lambin as an Everyday Young Hero for his effort to thank American
> soldiers who served in Iraq and Afghanistan.
> To nominate a young person who has improved their community through service to be
> recognized as an Everyday Young Hero, please visit www.ysa.org/awards/hero.
