WASHINGTON (AP) - A commitment to volunteerism is bringing together presidents past and present.

Former President George H.W. Bush is returning to the White House today for a ceremony with President Barack Obama.

The presidents will recognize the 5,000th Daily Point of Light Award. Bush created the award more than two decades ago to honor volunteer service. Its name comes from the description in his 1989 inaugural address of Americans serving each other as "a thousand points of light."

Bush's wife, Barbara; son Neil, and other relatives are expected to accompany Bush. Son and former President George W. Bush is not.

Also expected is Michelle Nunn, CEO of Points of Light and a possible Democratic Senate candidate from Georgia. She's the daughter of former Georgia Democratic Sen. Sam Nunn.
