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.
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.
