Seattle Works Day is a citywide fundraising and volunteer event organized by Seattle Works, a local nonprofit that builds community by connecting people with volunteer opportunities. It’s one day where individuals, nonprofits and companies tackle projects small and large together to make our community a better place. Volunteers pay a registration fee to help make this ambitious day happen and to support Seattle Works’ valuable year-round community projects. Seattle Works provides T-shirts, water and snacks, and hosts a family-friendly after-party to bring people together across age, location, job title and interest. PCC has arranged for vendors to offer snacks to the hardworking volunteers. PCC regularly partners with Seattle Works to manage volunteers for our packaging parties at food banks, where we repackage bulk foods for donation into family-sized portions. The bulk foods are purchased with money raised throughout the year by PCC and our shoppers.
Registration ends May 27, so gather your team and sign up soon. To learn more about Seattle Works and this event, visit seattleworks.org/swd.
