How many volunteers helped last month? What sort of work did volunteers do? This page logs volunteer service at shelter and significant events. Since some volunteers take shifts in multiple positions, the monthly totals do not sum exactly.
- During the HELP portrait event, volunteer photographers captured and developed portraits for families in the community.
- Volunteers also distributed gifts to families from donors in a 180-household “holiday adoption”.
- Nature Nutures Farm sponsored two half-day field trips for kids at shelter.
- With the end of the academic semester, we bid a number of interns goodbye and renegiotated service learning projects with Evergreen, Saint Martin’s, Pacific Lutheran, and Washington State.
We recognize Angela Polson as volunteer of the month for her help calling families to remind them of their portrait appointments, as well as her commitment to daytime shifts at shelter.
We hosted reading hour, a STEM science project, 2 workshops on the prevention of child sexual abuse. We also opened for our Cold Weather Shelter season.
We recognize Jaycie Osterberg as volunteer of the month. Jaycie consistently volunteers for greeter shifts. Jaycie has a wealth of experience supporting clients in the community and promoting mental health.
We hosted 5 events (going to see Cat in the Hat, fall crafts, a reading hour with the librarian, and a workshop for volunteers).
