Help Wanted: Must Like Beer & Be Willing to Work

We like volunteering. We like beer. In a way, that was the impetus behind the formation of Beer Church, the not-for-profit organization that Kim and I operate. Beer Church was created to provide people with fun, beer-related ways to give back and get involved. Today we learn of a local group of people with a similar mindset. They call themselves The Volunbeers and they are looking for like-minded individuals to join their team. They are recruiting people for a number of upcoming volunteering (and beer drinking) opportunities.

The Volunbeers is a Seattle Works team of volunteers. Seattle Works is an organization dedicated to bringing opportunities together with people wanting to volunteer. From one-time volunteer opportunities to training people to serve on non-profit boards, Seattle Works aims to get people connected to the community.  The Volunbeers concept is simple: spend the day volunteering and follow it up with some tasty, local beer. 

Here is more information about The Volunbeers and how you can get involved:

Like volunteering? Like beer? Then The Volunbeers is right up your alley. This recurring team volunteer event is for for late-20-somethings and 30-somethings who love to give back and kick back with a local brew afterward.

We’ll volunteer as a team four times over a four-month period: on 4/7, 5/5, 6/2 and 7/14, usually from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. After the volunteer events, we’ll visit a local brewery or beer bar for friendly, fun times. You’ll also be invited to the kickoff party on 4/3, and the thank-you party on 7/14 from 2-4 p.m.

$35 gets you Seattle Works swag, the volunteer projects, and activities/food at both the kickoff and thank-you parties.

  1. Any clue as to what the Volunbeers does? I may sign up, but I’d like to know what type of projects they work on.

  2. Hey, Tyler! I’m one of the team leads for the Volunbeers. Below is an overview of the different volunteer projects we’re planning to take on each month. Keep in mind that these are *definitely* subject to change, but this is the most updated information I have as of Tuesday:

    APRIL – Help the Magnuson Environmental Stewardship Alliance remove invasive alien plants, install native plants, and spread wood chips.

    MAY – Help Phinney Neighborhood Association set up for its annual auction. We’ll transform the Phinney Neighborhood Center into a boating-themed party space to celebrate the opening day of fishing season.

    JUNE – Help Lettuce Link/Marra Farm Solid Ground provide fresh produce for the food bank by taking part in tending its 8.7 acres in Seattle’s South Park neighborhood.

    JULY – Help Eastside Baby Corner sort and organize donations so it can efficiently distribute them to children in need.

    Hope you’re able to join us!
