The induction will take place at the 3rd staging of the CVSS Hall of Fame & Volunteer Awards on Thursday, December 8 at the Jamaica Pegasus Hotel, at which Prime Minister Andrew Holness will be guest speaker.

The event will be held under the theme 'Volunteerism as a Catalyst for National Development'.

The CVSS Hall of Fame & Volunteer Awards Banquet celebrates and honours volunteers that continue to support and improve social development by giving of their self and time.
