One Seattle Day of Service
The second annual One Seattle Day of Service is scheduled for May 20.
Per Mayor Bruce Harrell, “We know that neighbors want to be part of the solution to help us build a thriving, beautiful city, and we can all play a part in creating a better Seattle. The One Seattle Day of Service is a time to turn our shared values of inclusion, unity, and cooperation into real action to drive tangible improvements for the place we love and call home.”
Volunteer activities include:
Cleaning and beautification – collecting trash, removing graffiti, building repair, and painting
Gardening and restoration – weeding, planting, storm drain protection, and trail repair
Helping neighbors in need – grocery packing, donation organizing, and tiny home construction
