Do you want to support a nonprofit organization that believes poverty is solvable? Do you want to gain or improve your event planning skills?

The Solid Ground 2023 events series aims to spread awareness of social justice and our mission to end poverty. If you have experience or are interested in learning about event planning and organization, or just want to be more involved with Solid Ground’s events, this is a great position to do so! You will assist the Resource Development team with event day responsibilities including, but not limited to, setup and takedown, greeting and interacting with guests, registration, and other responsibilities.

We are hosting a variety of fundraising and community events throughout 2023. Most events take place in the early afternoon or evening. More details on start/end times and volunteer shifts will be released closer to the event dates.

About Solid Ground

Location:

1501 N 45TH ST, SEATTLE, WA 98103, US

Mission Statement

Our mission... Solid Ground works to end poverty and undo racism and other oppressions that are root causes of poverty. Our vision... Solid Ground believes our community can move beyond poverty and oppression to a place where all people have access to quality housing, nutritious food, equal justice and opportunities to thrive. Our values... Solid Ground is committed to working with compassion, integrity, accountability, creativity and an anti-oppression approach to end homelessness, hunger, inequality and other barriers to social justice. We value collaboration and leadership from the communities we serve.

Description

Our history...

Solid Ground was founded in 1974 by community leaders and concerned citizens of one of Seattle's then most economically devastated neighborhoods, Fremont. Originally called the Fremont Public Association, our services - emergency food bank, clothing bank, and employment program - reflected the desperate needs and determined response of a mobilized and committed neighborhood.

Solid Ground today...

As the scope and severity of homelessness and poverty have increased over the years, so too have our reach to our greater community and our range of services. Now based in Seattle’s Wallingford neighborhood, our 30 programs and services help more than 60,000 households each year overcome poverty and build better futures throughout King County and beyond.
