Seattle Works is a local organization devoted to connecting people to meaningful, career-building volunteer opportunities in the non-profit sector. Like the non-profits they serve, they need your help to stay funded. That's why you're going to sign up for Seattle Works Day, held on Saturday May 18 starting at 12 p.m.

Your day will start at noon when you will join a team of other volunteers for a few hours of awesome volunteer work. There are all kinds of projects you can join in on, and they range from organizing a library at Sanislo Elementary to working at ROOTS Young Adult Shelter. Then, at 3:30, you will go to the Seattle Center's Fisher Pavillion for food, drink, fun, and a free T-shirt. Who knows, you might even make a new friend. All for just $30.

Sign up here.
