Seattle Takes Care – a Next 50 project that gives our community practical ways to come together and make a difference for folks in our own backyard and our neighbors across the world.
Seattle Center Foundation is partnering with a number of service organizations to host impactful volunteer projects at Seattle Center that relate to the monthly Next Fifty theme.
Volunteer activities will occur each month and be a great way for individuals, families and/or groups, to get involved.
Join us and make a tangible difference in the lives of many – near and far.
