Happy National Volunteer Week to our amazing Localworks volunteers. We cannot thank you all enough for all of your hard work and dedication to our mission. As a staff of five, we simply could not produce our programs and events without you. We know that this year our volunteer program is going to look different, and we will continue to update you as opportunities arise. A huge thank you to our committee volunteers and our volunteer Board of Directors for adapting to our new way of life and continuing our good work virtually. We so wish that we could celebrate with each one of you in person, but for now, a big virtual cheers from us. Thank you for all that you do for our community!

Home on the Ridge
Please join Localworks on social media for our new Home on the Ridge campaign. Each week will have a theme (see link) and we’ll be sharing fun content that fits the theme, including interviews and tutorials from some of our awesome, local businesses.
We are also asking that you help us by participating! Take a photo or video that fits that week’s theme and share it with us. Tag @LocalworksWR on Facebook. If you’re using Instagram, share your photo or video on your story and tag @wearelocalworks, and we’ll share it to our story. Don’t forget to add #HomeOnTheRidge on whatever platform you use.
In honor of Earth Day, we are kicking off the campaign with gardening week. We have a few tutorials from Southwest Gardens and some ideas on how to celebrate Earth Day.
Take a short break and virtually meet up with your friends and neighbors for a quick cup of coffee (or tea). Every Wednesday at 10am, Localworks will host a 15 minute Community Coffee Break. We’ll chat about a specific topic (see link), share resources and get some much needed social interaction. Below is the link to the registration form*. These community chats will be held weekly. Please join us as often as you’d like!
Everyone in the community is welcome to attend. Please help us spread the word about this program by sharing the registration page with friends and neighbors. See you on Wednesday!
