Snoqualmie Valley Food Bank, March of the Vegetables, Duvall Days and the Sno-Valley Senior Center are just a few of the local organizations that were awarded money from King County Community Engagement Grants to support projects in the unincorporated areas of the county.
A total of $90,000 in grant money went to organizations from the food banks, to emergency preparedness training, movie nights, native pond habitat restoration and even a commercial dishwasher for a senior center. The grants ranged from $300 to more than $4,000 and were distributed to community organizations in seven community service areas including Snoqualmie Valley/ Northeast King County and Bear Creek / Sammamish.
According to King County Executive Dow Constantine, the grants support the best of King County by combining awards with local funding to maximize community driven investments to build stronger neighborhoods, improve quality of life, and create positive connections between residents.
