WSCAI’s Earth Day Project
Each year, in honor of Earth Day, WSCAI’s Community Outreach Committee solicits nominations from member communities that are in need of assistance with landscape and general spring cleanup. From those nominations the Committee reviews and selects a deserving community. A big Congratulations goes out to Silver Glen Cooperative for being the 2016 recipient. This year, the Community Outreach Committee recruited volunteers to assist at the work party scheduled on Wednesday, April 20. Continental breakfast and lunch were provided to all volunteers. If you are interested in participating in future Earth Day Projects or making a donation, you are encouraged to fill out the Earth Day Call for Volunteers Form.
A Special Thanks To All That Volunteered
Earth Day projects are backbreaking, yet fun and collaborative events. Silver Glen’s project brought just shy of 60 volunteers, plus an additional dozen owner volunteers who were very supportive delivering water, serving a delicious lunch and providing direction when necessary. We thank all of our volunteers for coming out to support our efforts as it was a grueling day.
We would like to extend a special thanks to those WSCAI Business Partners and their extended networks who graciously donated 100% of the cost, equipment and materials necessary for our project. These are: Ruff Construction, SSI, Northwest Landscape Services, Whirlwind Clean & Green, Fischer Plumbing & Restoration, ServPro of Edmonds, Lynwood and Bellevue West, Jergens Painting, Sunbelt Rentals, McBride Construction, Eastside LandCare, Home Depot and Safe Sidewalks. SSI and Ruff Construction’s donations went above and beyond with their volunteerism by donating several days and countless hours of additional support.
We hope that you are inspired to volunteer for next year’s Earth Day event!
