President Obama will welcome President George H.W. Bush and members of the former first family to the White House on Monday to honor service volunteers.
Former first lady Barbara Bush will join the 41st president to celebrate the 5,000th Daily Point of Light Award, given out by the world’s largest organization devoted to volunteer service — a group in which Bush serves as honorary chairman — a White House official said.
Bush created the award in 1990.
“Monday’s event brings together two presidents and families united in their commitment to growing volunteerism and service – an issue with a long history of strong bipartisan support,” a White House official said, previewing the event. “Like the Bushes, the Obamas’ commitment to service and volunteerism runs very far back – and is an issue they have championed since their first days in office.”
