In recognition of April as National Volunteer Appreciation month, Tualatin will be celebrating those who came forward in 2020 to support our community in new and innovative ways. In our Library and Parks, along trails and from the safety of their homes, volunteers found ways to serve and did so enthusiastically through two new programs introduced in the past year.
The Do It Yourself (DIY) volunteer program gives volunteers the opportunity to keep parks, trails and greenspaces clean and vibrant. Over 60 volunteers are participating, giving 325 hours so far to make an impact on the community shared spaces.
The Library’s Craft Prep Crew volunteers support the Take n Make activity program by assembling craft projects for our youngest community members to engage in creative learning activities. Two hundred projects were completed at home by volunteers.
Tualatin’s volunteers embraced these new opportunities and adapted to new ways of volunteering while maintaining the new safety protocols.
Join us in celebrating the strength and generosity of Tualatin’s volunteers!
