United Way of Snohomish County: Day of Caring Volunteers from Keysight Technologies

Youth & Family Wellness Fair

Saturday, May 4, 2019

United Way of Snohomish County is proud to support the 2019 Youth and Family Wellness Fair that will take place on Saturday, May 4, 2019 at Evergreen Middle School in Everett from 10am-3pm.

The Youth & Family Wellness Fair is a family-fun event filled with activities, workshops, giveaways, a free meal, and more!

The fair promotes a healthy lifestyle for the whole family by increasing access to physical health, mental wellbeing, and parenting resources and workshops for Snohomish County families. A fun and educational event, this one-day fair helps children and their families understand the connection between physical and mental health to create healthier communities through advocacy and self-empowerment.

160 Volunteers have been confirmed with a large group from Comcast making up over half of the volunteers currently signed up.

Members of Snohomish County Labor and members of the community make up the remaining number of volunteers.

United Way in partnership with Snohomish County Labor is the primary organization responsible for volunteer recruitment and event support.

For more information about the event, please visit Snohomish County Government's website.

Letter Carriers Food Drive

Saturday, May 11, 2019

Each year on the second Saturday in May, letter carriers collect non-perishable food donations from houses across the county. These donations go directly to local food pantries to provide food to people in need, and they need your help! On Saturday, May 11, Letter Carriers will be picking up community members' food donations and bringing them to post offices where volunteers will sort and pack the food to go to local food banks.

If you are interested in volunteering, please contact Volunteers of America.

Trade UP

Date TBD

At Trade UP, high schoolers get an entire school day to explore a variety of trade jobs—from firefighting and construction to water management and computer-aided design.

Students receive a timecard to simulate a day on the job, and they are encouraged to get their hands dirty to see what the trades can offer. With information about apprenticeships, salaries, and “a day in the life” explained by seasoned professionals, students get to experience a hands-on career fair hosted by our Snohomish County Labor Council.

Day of Caring

Friday, Sept. 13, 2019

Each year, United Way of Snohomish County's Day of Caring brings together volunteers who are committed to creating positive change in our community. This year, many projects will help families with young children struggling to get by, including a few projects from our CORE Collaboratives

Volunteer teams, organized primarily by local companies, complete projects for local nonprofit agencies that often lack the necessary resources to tackle such important initiatives themselves. Last year, more than 100 volunteers across Snohomish County came out to make a difference in our community!

Join your friends and neighbors for a Day of CORE!
