Have you seen the signs around the Valley? “We ❤️Snoqualmie Valley?” Here’s some info on what organizers hope becomes a local movement of kindness and community.
One day. Impactful projects. All for the same goal. The first annual Love Snoqualmie Valley Volunteer Day will launch on October 5th from 8AM to 12PM with important projects across the Snoqualmie Valley.
In 2007 Modesto, California was ranked one of the worst cities to live in America. A few churches in the community felt like it was time to make a change. With a lot of dreaming and planning, they brought all sectors of the community together and launched the first Love Modesto.
They hoped for 100 people to join the effort and more than 1,200 people showed up to love their city in practical ways. Cities all over the nation are launching their own efforts and today over 136,000 volunteers are onboard to make their community a better place to live.
And now, the Snoqualmie Valley is adding its name to the growing list of cities who are part of the Love Our Cities movement.

The Love Snoqualmie Valley Leadership Team is made up of people from churches across the Snoqualmie Valley with a passion to serve the community.
They explained, “The Snoqualmie Valley is a beautiful, safe and thriving community, but in many ways, collaboration can be a challenge. Can you imagine the impact we could have if our governments, businesses, residents, faith communities, service groups, schools, and sports organizations spent one-day serving side by side across the Snoqualmie Valley?”
From Duvall to North Bend, organizers encourage the community to come together to serve in practical ways like appreciating public servants, visiting convalescent homes, donating blood, working in city parks and schools, among other opportunities.
Organizers say, “We hope this day of volunteering helps fill in the gaps for needs in our community, helps residents get involved and offers collaboration across many sectors.”
