Volunteers give so much of their time and ask for little in return.
And on Tuesday the Helpline Center wanted to honor some of these selfless people.
The Best Western Ramkota Hotel was packed for the third annual Spirit of Volunteerism Awards luncheon.
Helpline awarded five out of the 60 nominees for various reasons such as helping victims of domestic violence or getting fellow youth interested in philanthropy.
Each volunteer winner received a clock and gave a thank you speech.
Audrey Nordine says, "Volunteers are the heart of our community. A lot of things don't get done in non-profits without volunteers. It's a great way to honor them, show our respect to the volunteers that give so much of their time.
There are a lot of ways to give back to the community.
