Seattle Works Day To Generate 5,000 Volunteer Hours

By master · May 6th, 2011 · No Comments

May 21st is Seattle Works Day, in which 1,500 volunteers will be participating in 32 different service projects throughout Seattle from noon to 3:30PM. That’s 5,000 hours of service in a single day, organized by the nonprofit Seattle Works.

The projects include a visit to the Ronald McDonald House in Fremont. Volunteers will be helping us clean and organize in the family spaces of our House.

The volunteers converge at Settle Center immediately following the projects for an after party hosted by Seattle Works following the service projects. Last year 81% of participants said that they were inspired to do more in the community as a result of Seattle Works Day.

Seattle Works is still accepting teams and individual volunteers – please visit or contact Kathleen Weber (206-324-0808 or to learn how to get involved!
