On April 18, Seattle Mayor Bruce Harrell announced a new citywide opportunity for Seattleites to participate in volunteer activities to help others in the city. Mayor Harrell unveiled the program in response to the desire he has heard to assist others in need:
“I love Seattle – and I know so many neighbors share that same passion for our city and want to be part of making it a better place. As my administration works to tackle urgent challenges, I hear every day from Seattle residents looking for ways to be part of the solution. Today, I’m excited to announce the One Seattle Day of Service – a new opportunity for everyone to get involved and give back.”
More than 80 organizations are partnering with the City in the One Seattle Day of Service, including the Chinatown-International District BIA, Downtown Seattle Association, Pioneer Square Alliance, Chief Seattle Club, Food Lifeline, Urban League, Seattle Mariners, Seattle Sounders FC, OL Reign, and UW Husky Football.
One Seattle Day of Service kicks off at 9 am on May 21 and will run until 5 pm. Most shifts will be 2-3 hours long. If you are interested in participating, you can register here.
