Are you an individual interested in giving a few hours of your time?
Maybe a Connect Group looking for somewhere to serve?


Below are local organizations that can use our help as they reach out to those in need in our community.

This list is always changing and growing so check back often!

A Cleaner Alki

If you get tired of seeing trash, this might be the group for you. The first Saturday of each month has a standing Alki Beach pick-up beginning at 10am. Meet at the brick apartments at 2542 Alki Ave SW, with groups spreading out from Alki Beach towards Anchor Park and Constellation Park, and neighboring streets in between. Pickup sticks & buckets you are provided or bring your own.

Additionally, larger pop-up projects occur throughout the month. Follow them on Facebook for more details.

The Welcome Table

An every Saturday event held at The Body of Christ Church at 1320 SW 102nd St. in White Center. Initiated to serve people who are unsheltered, plus elders and those with disabilities, the Welcome Table's clientele has expanded during the coronavirus epidemic to include many families having trouble making ends meet. It is held Saturdays from noon to 1:30pm. You can be involved in meal preparation, providing food donations, assisting with set-up and tear down, or staffing tables where those attending can pick up needed food, clothing and hygiene supplies. For additional information, contact Cinda Stenger at cstenger49@gmail.com
