South Sound Reading Foundation - Sign up to Volunteer

On Saturday January 30 we're going to help The South Sound Reading Foundation ! Located in Lacey in a large converted gym SSRF's warehouse is a like a giant library. We will have two opportunities (a morning and an afternoon) shift to work with them on 1/30; each shift is limited to 10 people total. In order to follow our Safe Sanctuaries protocols 2 of those slots are for adults so we have 8 youth slots per shift.

What will we be doing? Whatever they ask! Or, more specifically, sorting, stacking, shelving and organizing books!

Here is a link to select the time slot you would like to volunteer in:

Once you have signed up I will email you a permission slip.

Looking forward to it!


Do you like to write stories or make art?
