Last year 23 Bellevue neighborhoods rolled up their sleeves and completed 38 community service projects. The city's new Neighbor Link program provided support.
Neighbor Link kicks off 2010 with open houses at City Hall on Wednesday, March 17, and Thursday, March 18, where neighborhoods considering taking on community service projects can get coaching. The Wednesday open house will be 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.; the Thursday event will be 5 to 8 p.m. Flyer
Neighborhood groups and individuals are encouraged to bring their ideas to the Neighborhood Resource Center on the first floor, where they can receive personal coaching for their projects.
Not sure what you want to do? Staff will be on hand to help individuals and groups select projects, identify resources, mobilize support and get organized. Opportunities will be available to plug into existing community needs or to create your own project. Neighborhoods, individuals, high school students (community service hours available) and younger children are all encouraged to come in and participate.
Appointments are available during the open houses, but walk-ins are welcome too. Organized projects will be eligible for awards and recognition at the Neighbor Link Celebration of Service picnic and concert on Sept. 11.
