Idea 7: Offer Your Talent

Here are a few organizations and individuals who donate their talent to First Place. Each one saves us staff time and money. Every time we save money, the students and families win.

VanHouten Photography: Ben VanHouten is a professional photographer who donates his time to First Place photographing our annual fundraising breakfast, and children in the classroom.

Taproot Foundation recently granted First Place a redesign of our website. The grant provides First Place with a highly skilled team of professionals working pro bono in their area of specialty.
Linda Byron, Investigative Reporter for KING5 News has been a volunteer at First Place since our very first year. She donates her talents as the emcee of our annual fundraising breakfast and offers her professional advice to us in marketing and communications.

Thank you to all of our volunteers for the time you donate to First Place.

We have many opportunities for professionals who are interested in volunteering their skills. In addition to volunteer opportunities we have with the students, we are currently looking for help with event planning, fund development, marketing, finance, law, and advocacy.

Contact our Volunteer Manager Joyce Scoggins at 206 323 6715.

Thank you for all of your support of our programs thus far. And remember to check back for daily updates and ideas! If you have any questions about the Idea a Day postings, please email Melissa Collett, Marketing & Events Manager.
