It’s no secret that our programs wouldn’t be the same without our amazing community partners. They work with us to provide projects for Team Works, Hot Projects and HandsOn Leadership; they give The Bridge graduates a chance to serve on their board and they jumped at the opportunity to work with us through our newest program, CommonWealth. Yes, it’s definitely not secret – they’re fantastic and we show our appreciation often.
What gets us all volun-tingly inside is when we receive unexpected emails from community partners that are filled with appreciation for what we do and our volunteers. Below are a few Hot Project testimonials that we’ve gotten in the last few weeks:
“Katie Cochrane, Project Coordinator, was fantastic and so helpful! She was well-prepared and taught us a thing or two about volunteer coordination on-site. All of the volunteers arrived at our Communities In Schools Mardi Gras Dinner & Auction on time and ready to work. They really understood why they were there, the impact of our event and worked diligently the entire evening. Most volunteers even offered to stay beyond their commitment! I’m so grateful for the help and support from Seattle Works Hot Project volunteers!!! We were able to cut our set up time in half.”
– Maria Muñoz, State Board Member, Communities In Schools of Washington
“They [volunteers] were all phenomenal! I can’t tell you how happy we have been with the folks you’ve sent our way; we really value our connection with Seattle Works!”
– Sarah Bigley, KidsQuest Children’s Museum
“We’ve really enjoyed having so many of your volunteers and would love more groups this summer!”
– LeAnne Chow, Volunteer Coordinator, Phinney Neighborhood Association
