The volunteers who bring hot meals to the homebound and perform backbreaking labor for tornado victims aren't interested in fame. They give up their time -- and share their skills -- to make sure that the hungry are fed and that those down on their luck have hope.

But during National Volunteer Month, we are taking outstanding do-gooders out of the backdrop and into the spotlight. We are honoring those who never hesitate to step up and motivate us all to give back.

Click through our slideshow to read the inspiring stories of five volunteers who have made immeasurable impacts on their communities and show no signs of letting up.

If you know a particularly incredible do-gooder who you think deserves to be recognized, email us at so we can add the story to our slideshow.
