Local agencies need volunteers, supplies
"The holidays inspire charitable impulses," notes Snoqualmie Valley Community Network coordinator Ellen Kropp. "We want to remind folks in the Valley that commitments of volunteer time can make a long-term difference in improving the lot of many in need here, far beyond what a one-time gift can accomplish."
To support this initiative, the Network recently surveyed a group of Snoqualmie Valley agencies regarding volunteer needs and "wish list" equipment needs. The results include the following:
