2011 Local Giving Fair -- Looking for Planning Committee Volunteers!

The Greenwood Senior Center is very excited to begin gathering volunteers for the second annual Local Giving Fair. The Local Giving Fair is a project of the Greenwood Senior Center’s civic engagement program and provides a space for local non-profit organizations working on a range of social justice, environmental, and human rights issues to connect with community members wishing to learn more and make donations to support these projects.

Currently, we are looking for people interested in offering their skills as committee members. Volunteering as a committee member is a great way to get event planning experience for a special community event and to support organizations addressing social justice and human rights issues in our community, all the while working with a wonderful group of fellow volunteers.

The senior center will be holding a community meeting for people interested in learning more about the Local Giving Fair and what volunteering as a committee member entails on Wednesday, May 4th, from noon-1pm at the Green Bean Coffee House (8533 Greenwood Ave. N, Seattle 98103). The Green Bean provides delicious lunch and other snacks that you can purchase. Otherwise, feel free to bring a bagged lunch if you’d like to eat. (If you are purchasing food, please give yourself adequate time so that the meeting can begin promptly at noon. Thanks!).

If you plan to attend, please let Emily at the Greenwood Senior Center know ( (206) 297-0875). If you are unable to make this meeting but are interested in being a part of the committee, or have any questions, please call or email Emily at the senior center.

Thank you!
