Community Service Committee
PSALA's Community Service Committee is a very active committee that works to provide visibility for the Chapter through organized participation in community service. As members of PSALA, our mission, in part, is to (1) support the diverse community in which we live and to work through our members’ collective time, talents and contributions; (2) to provide Chapter members with opportunities to reach out to others; and (3) to lead by example, encouraging our local organizations to increase their volunteer efforts in the community. The Co-Chairs of the Community Service Committee for 2011-2012 are
PSALA is pleased to announce that for the 2013-14 chapter year it’s community service partners will be the Literacy Council of Seattle, Operation Homefront Pacific Northwest, and the Seattle Rock Orchestra. For more information about these organizations, watch for an article in the next issue of Soundings.
You can find your community service committee hard at work at the Seattle Rock Orchestra’s May 11 and 12 performances of The Beatles Magical Mystery Tour and Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band at the Moore Theatre. Visit their website to purchase tickets.
If you would like to donate books for the Literacy Council of Seattle’ 2013 book sale, their drop-off site is at their office at 8500 14th Ave. NW, Ballard, WA. They are looking for new or gently used books of all types, including fiction, nonfiction, art, nature, history, mysteries, children's, etc. Their only request is that they be re-saleable; therefore, no textbooks or damaged books.
