SW Genesee, just of 35th (near Pecos BBQ) in West Seattle

ASCE Seattle is looking for volunteers to participate in a Rebuilding Together project on September 18 at a home in West Seattle. Join us in providing repairs and improvements to a home originally built in 1920, owned by a recent widow in need of our support. During the volunteer event, we will be following State guidelines for COVID-19, with participants required to wear masks and maintain at least six feet of distance. Face masks will be provided if needed. Much of the proposed work will take place outdoors. We will be sure to communicate with volunteers in the case of the event being cancelled.

Interested in volunteering? Please reach out to Ross French at (206) 679-3225 or email
