VOLUNTEER WITH US!

"I volunteer at SonBridge because I want to be connected with my community and help in any way that I can. My favorite thing about SonBridge is that it is helping the community and meeting so many wonderful people and working with them."

THE KEY TO SONBRIDGE'S EFFECTIVENESS & INFLUENCE ARE VOLUNTEERS.

We have pictured only a few of the members of the large (over 110 volunteers), diverse, and generous SonBridge family. Here in Washington, volunteer labor is valued at $33.02 per hour (2019, latest info available). Our volunteers support the community with greater than 2,100 hours per month of service that is valued at over $70,000 per month. This is over $840,000 per year—our largest source of support. We ask for a commitment of three hours per week from our volunteers, yet many give far beyond this. This volunteer team enables us to operate the Thrift & Gift Store and provide the steady income that empowers us to serve. To our SonBridge Family, we thank you for being the incredible blessing that you are to the Walla Walla Valley.
