City of Seattle employees give generously to hundreds of community-based organizations during the year through the Seattle Shares program. Together, city employees donate more than $1 million annually and pledge nearly 15,000 volunteer hours. Supporting communities where we live and work and donating to local, national and global organizations is part of our culture of giving.
Stuff the Bus
City Light teamed up with Communities in Schools of Seattle in the annual Stuff the Bus campaign, which helps kids from low-income families head back to school with needed school supplies.
Last summer, city employees and the public donated more than a vanload of backpacks, pencils, markers, notebooks, scissors, calculators and other school items. All the materials were then loaded into a bright yellow school bus.
Donations from Stuff the Bus help lessen the burden of high costs of school supplies for families and teachers alike. City Light thanks those who contributed to Stuff the Bus to provide for a bright and exciting school year for these kids.
