Spokane Gives: Why Volunteer?

Jessica Fisher, Public Information Assistant


Monday, April 24, 2017 at 11:08 a.m.

Spokane Gives month is a great time to give back to your community. Today marks the beginning of the last week of Spokane Gives month. However, plenty of volunteer opportunities remain.

Last year, 17,214 community volunteers worked a combined 91,523 hours on 380 different volunteer projects. With such a large number of projects, volunteers are able to work on projects that speak to their passions. Volunteer opportunities range from painting, cleaning, planting, building and much more.

Spokane Gives is a month of unprecedented giving in our region. Thank you to all the volunteers for your support and dedication to the Spokane community.

We are once again partnering with Spokane County United Way to help match volunteers with Spokane Gives projects. This partnership helps match organizations and volunteers with projects that fit their passions. Find a volunteer project that interests you.

Spokane is the most compassionate community in American and we look forward to everything the Spokane Gives initiative will accomplish this year.
