As we head into the last month of the year, we begin to reflect on the months behind us and think about the year we’ve had at Greentrike. One of the many things we are grateful for in 2022 is the corporate leadership we have seen in our volunteerism. Several local organizations have volunteered their time, energy, and expertise to assist with our programs and events, and in doing so, have increased our community reach and impact.
Here are four local organizations that we want to thank for their commitment to volunteerism in 2022!
Columbia Bank volunteered with us on multiple occasions, preparing more than 200 Greentrike Cares Kits to be distributed to local organizations that serve children and families and are in need of play-based activities, creating decorations for holiday parties, and manning the snow cone booth at the Greentrike Back to School Festival in August.
A group of ten volunteers from Medex Northwest assembled hundreds of dental health kits for Play to Learn Pierce County. The kits will be distributed to all Play to Learn participants during Dental Health week to increase community access to essentials like toothpaste and toothbrushes.
Sound Credit Union
Sound Credit Union volunteered with us to complete two big projects! During an afternoon of service, volunteers assembled 270 Greentrike Cares Kits for Mary Bridge Children’s Hospital, and in August, another group assisted with our banner sustainability project. Volunteers cleaned hundreds of old canvas light post banners to prepare them for transformation into canvas tote bags.
KeyBank volunteers assembled Greentrike Cares Kits and assisted with preparations for our annual fundraiser, the Right to Play Gala. Many of the volunteers came to the Children’s Museum of Tacoma to work on the project, while several volunteers chose to have a portion of the kits delivered to their office to enable offsite work. KeyBank is one of our longest standing corporate volunteers and has helped us with countless projects over the years.
