2021 Volunteer Story Project

2020 offered challenges and Washingtonians responded. Share how you or someone you know made a difference in 2020. 

Neighbors lending a hand, community activists, and volunteers make a difference in our communities every day. Especially in 2020. Serve Washington invites you to share volunteer stories and inspire service across the state. Help us honor 2020 community helpers by telling us their story. Selected stories will be highlighted on Serve Washington’s social media throughout April to coincide with national volunteer week.

We want Washingtonians to learn about:

  • Neighbors helping neighbors
  • AmeriCorps, Senior Corps or other national service members serving in our state
