Volunteers in Action


La Mirada Honors Community Volunteers

Year after year thousands of local volunteers contribute to making La Mirada an outstanding place to live.

The City of La Mirada recognizes these efforts with the “Volunteer in Action Awards” ceremony, which is held at the La Mirada Theatre for the Performing Arts.

This awards ceremony, developed in 1996, honors individuals and organizations who commit their time to helping others throughout the community.

Youth, adult, and senior volunteers, as well as organizations, may be nominated for their dedication to making La Mirada a better place to live. Special awards are given for Lifetime Achievement, Corporate Responsibility and the Medal of Valor.

This event is open to the public. For more information, contact City Hall at (562) 943-0131.
