Volunteers from PGE help “Spruce Up the Library!”

In recognition of April as National Volunteer Appreciation month, Tualatin celebrates those volunteers who returned in 2021 and helped sustain the momentum of support the City experienced in the first year of the pandemic. In our Library and Parks, along trails and from the safety of their homes, volunteers returned to serve with enthusiasm through new and favorite volunteer programs.

Volunteers from “Put Down Roots in Tualatin.”

785 volunteers gave 10,800 hours of their time to a variety of City programs.  Volunteers planted over 4,000 trees and got tough on trash in a new program, Hug a Street. Volunteers shelved books, Spruced up the Library, welcomed and engaged with users of the Library’s new MakerSpace.

Outreach Volunteers spent over 60 hours connecting vulnerable residents of Tualatin with emergency rent and utility assistance. Do It Yourself volunteers scheduled their time to remove invasive plants and litter from our restoration sites and trails and over 100 summer youth volunteers came out for Library Summer Teen and TEAM Tualatin. The Juanita Pohl Center Guest Services team contributed many hours to organizing the Center for reopening and creating a welcoming environment for all throughout the uncertainty of resuming programs.

Join us in celebrating and appreciating the positively awesome volunteers in Tualatin who give their time and talent to the Community.
