Dear Rainier Beach Community,
Please join our “Corner Greeters,” and help make Rainier Beach a beautiful safe place for youth, you can help by:
1. Spreading the word! Share this announcement
2. Signing up to be a volunteer “Greeter.” Here is a link to an online schedule where you can sign-up to be part of one (or more) greeter events.
You created the idea for Corner Greeters during the 21-Day Community Challenge at the Gathering event at South Shore School. The basic idea is this: For five consecutive weeks in the Summer of 2014, friendly volunteer “greeters” will set up portable “greeting places” in Rainier Beach to greet passers-by with a smile and invite them to interact in a creative, safe, fun mode of engagement. Greeters will share free food, beverages, and information about Rainier Beach community resources, events and crime prevention materials in multiple languages.
Goal 1: Spark interaction to build community and foster positive connections to the place.
Goal 2: Share and spread peace-based messages with a focus on caring for youth and preventing violence.

Please contact me if I can provide any additional information. Thanks for all you do to make Rainier Beach a beautiful, safe place for youth!
