When: Saturday, Jun 1, 2019 - Tuesday, Dec 31, 2019 All Day

Thank you to all members of the Yale Seattle community for joining us in making this year’s Yale Day of Service a great success. From helping 6-12th graders gain insight on how to prepare for the college application process to helping restore nature’s balance by removing ivy and other invasive species on the Bainbridge Island Land Trust, each volunteer made a difference in our community.

Included here are some pictures from the volunteer team at Northwest Harvest Warehouse. They were able to help pack 19,000 pounds of oranges. (That’s 9.5 TONS!)

We celebrate all our volunteers’ hard work, and we look forward to another successful day of service next year. If you have ideas for how to get involved in the community before then, please reach out to help plan another event!
