Thanks to Our MLK Day of Service Volunteers!


This MLK Day of Service we hosted 23 volunteers from two Washington Conservation Corp groups – the King County and the Evinger crews – and the UW’s Young Democrats.  They were an enthusiastic bunch that helped build walls and create a display area for cabinet sets, so that the product can be seen better; worked on the first phase of a vertical pallet garden for an area of our back lot that needed some sprucing up; and painted 58 new signs, so that we can have consistent way-finding throughout the store.  The work that these 23 folks did equaled 184 work hours, which would have taken our staff just over a week of non-open time to achieve – so we are truly thankful and happy to get some of these much needed projects closer to complete.  Thanks so much to these groups for their MLK Day of service – and to United Way for helping us connect with a great group of volunteers!
