SATURDAY: Mayor Harrell to Join Thousands of Volunteers, Seattle Sports Teams, and Community Partners for the 2024 One Seattle Day of Service


Seattle neighbors and leaders embrace spirit of service with over 130 volunteer events throughout the city

Seattle – On Saturday, Mayor Bruce Harrell will kick off the 2024 One Seattle Day of Service and join thousands of volunteers to give back and take action to improve the city we love.

“Service to others is one of our highest One Seattle values, showing how we can turn common ground into common cause,” said Mayor Harrell. “We know that neighbors want to be part of the solution to help build a thriving, healthy, and vibrant city, and the One Seattle Day of Service is a vehicle to take tangible action for the city we love and call home. I’m excited to be shoulder to shoulder with residents and community partners this Saturday as we unite to make Seattle a better place for all.”

Nearly 100 organizations will be involved by either leading events, promoting events, or sending teams to volunteer at events. Partners include local sports teams like the Seattle Seahawks, Sounders FC, and Mariners; employers like Amazon and Patagonia Seattle; small businesses; neighborhood groups; local government leaders and staff; nonprofits and many, many more.

Mayor Harrell will participate in three events across the city, starting the morning in Pioneer Square with the Alliance for Pioneer Square and representatives from the Seahawks, Mariners, and Sounders to clean and beautify the neighborhood. He will then join African Community Housing & Development for the opening of the Delridge Farmers Market. Finally, he will close the day by joining the University District YMCA to host children’s activities at the U-District Street Fair.

This year’s Day of Service includes over 130 volunteer events throughout the city with a wide array of service activities, appropriate for people across ages, abilities, and interests, including:

  • Cleaning and beautification – collecting trash, removing graffiti, building repair, and painting.

  • Gardening and restoration – weeding, planting, storm drain protection, and trail repair.

  • Helping neighbors in need – grocery packing, donation organizing, and tiny home construction.

The Day of Service will also include a concert for volunteers at 12:00 p.m. in Occidental Square hosted by Amazon.

Volunteer sign up are open until May 18, 2024. Learn more at Seattle.gov/DayofService.
