Pasco Jaycees Easter Egg Hunt! 3-31-2018

The Seattle Jaycees traveled over to the Tri-Cities to help out our sister chapter, the Pasco Jaycees with their annual Easter Egg Hunt! We had a blast, and got to join in on an event that was a first for a couple of us. We helped the Easter Bunny amp up the excitement before the kids ran for the eggs, we handed out prizes for raffle winners and for kids who found the lucky tickets in their eggs. Afterwards we chased down candy rappers blowing through the eastern Washington wind. We had a lot of fun and are hoping to get some great ideas and volunteers to start up our own Easter Egg Hunt over on the west side of the state!

LIHI Tiny House Northlake! 2-17-18

We braced the cold, winter weather and had a ton of fun! We met down at the construction site for the new Northlake Tiny House Village in Seattle. This site is expected to accommodate 22 Tiny Houses, a community kitchen, showers, bathrooms and onsite laundry. LIHI (Low Income Housing Institute) provides the opportunity for homeless individuals to get back onto their feet. The Tiny houses come fully furnished with beds, and other amenities, including heat for the year round chilly weather. This is one of the many locations that LIHI has developed from the ground up, providing shelter for the less fortunate. A majority of their help comes from Volunteers, and it is an organization we are proud to support! Take a look at some of the fun we had doing this project!
