Local volunteers from "One Brick" working at Food Lifeline this Thursday evening

Leah, with One Brick Seattle wants to share this information:

For only two hours, from 6:00 pm-8:00 pm on Thursday, June 18, One Brick Seattle volunteers will be spending some time at Shoreline's Food Lifeline to repack the bulk donations the organization receives and help provide food to more than 300 food banks and shelters in the Seattle area. At One Brick’s last Food Lifeline event, volunteers sorted, boxed and loaded up food for delivery. One Brick volunteers repacked more than 7,800 pounds of cabbage to provide more than 6,100 meals in the local community.

One Brick is a national non-profit volunteer organization chapter that just launched a Seattle chapter. One Brick does the work of connecting volunteers with local non-profit organizations and providing structured volunteer opportunities.

To date, One Brick has recruited more than 15,000 volunteers in six cities, including Seattle. Together, these volunteers have contributed more than 200,000 hours of service to their local communities. In 2008 alone, One Brick brought 54,000 hours to the communities it serves. And Lake City locals interested in helping out with the Food Lifeline event is encouraged to check out the One Brick web site and RSVP to attend the event or another upcoming informational meeting.

In addition to the upcoming clean up party, One Brick is a great organization and a good opportunity for locals to network, enjoy some social time and make a positive impact on their community.

It’s the emphasis on volunteering made easy that has made One Brick successful nationwide and we hope to continue that success in Seattle.
