Spokane Gives, the initiative that matches passion with needs to shine the light on volunteerism all year-round, will become a month-long effort this year. April will become Spokane Gives Month.
This year, the City will again partner with Spokane County United Way to match volunteers with projects through VolunteerSpokane.org. It provides a place for organizations to post projects, volunteers to find projects that fit their interests and passions, and track volunteer hours.
During the first two years, the community has turned out in numbers in support of individuals, organizations and events. More than 17,000 volunteers have given more than 78,000 hours of service. Feedback has been overwhelmingly positive and has included a desire from volunteers and organizations for more opportunities.
So we are going all out, expanding Spokane Gives Week to Spokane Gives MONTH starting April 1 to create better flexibility for everyone involved to find a match.
We are asking nonprofit organizations to visit VolunteerSpokane.org to post their projects so that volunteers can begin planning to help.
Let’s show America why Spokane is the most compassionate city anywhere. We’ll see you out there this April!
