National Volunteer Month - Crafting Joy & Building Dreams

Apr 13 11:00 AM-2:00 PM
Birthday Dreams
1084 Kirkland Ave NE, Renton, 98057

April is National Volunteer Month and we are calling all volunteers to join forces to serve 365 hours in a single month.


Emerging Leaders 365 are hosting volunteer projects on Saturdays, April 6 and April 13. Projects are designed to serve an immediate need in the community with trusted organizations and partners. As we work side-by-side with communities to build an equitable future for everyone, your support is invaluable. Volunteer with youth at Coyote Central, children at risk of homelessness at Birthday Dreams, and/or help families in need of shelter and basic needs items.


When you come to two or more volunteer month projects, you’ll receive free tickets to our next Happy Hour & Hellos event, complete with drink tokens and prizes.


Join us on April 13th for a monthly volunteer opportunity to support Birthday Dreams. Birthday Dreams provides a dream birthday to homeless children ages 1 to 18 years. In 2018 over 40,000 school age children were homeless in Washington State. Of those, only 13% were living in shelters*. The rest are living on the street, in cars, couch surfing with friends or family, and in group foster homes. For a child experiencing homelessness, something as simple as a birthday party can seem miles out of reach.


  • We will help Birthday Dreams prepare birthday party favors.
  • Decorating goody bags.
  • Making party hats.
  • Creating and putting together party games!
