Through Team Works, the first project I did was to help fix up the Rainier Valley Cultural Center.

9. What is your most (or first) memorable volunteer experience?

The most memorable volunteer experience I have was taking inventory of a thrift shop on pieces of paper.  While not the most practical or well organized project it certainly provided some of the best memories.

10. What makes someone a Seattleite?

Someone who doesn’t use an umbrella on a rainy day, they just wear their North Face, Patagonia, etc jacket to stay dry.

This weekly 10 question profile is Seattle Works way of highlighting and saying THANK YOU to all that our volunteers, leaders, community partners, board members, committee members, etc do for our community! We’re asking the same 10 questions to various Seattle Works participants as a fun way to feature the different ways to be involved with Seattle Works and in Seattle.
