WHAT TO WEAR

You can also wear comfortable pants or shorts that you won't mind getting dirty in! Closed-toed shoes are also recommended if you are working outdoors or with heavy tools. 

 

HOMES & SCHOOLS

Q. What locations are the homes which will be served this year?

A. Participating homes will be selected in mid-July and could be anywhere in Bellevue.

Q. How are homeowners selected to receive assistance on Jubilee Service Day?

A. Homeowners apply through a mailer sent by the city of Bellevue. Experienced volunteers begin an process of evaluation to determine a homeowners level of need.  We meet homeowners and get to know their story. Homes are then sorted based on the level of need, and we serve as many as possible. The aim is to help people who cannot otherwise do the work themselves, physically or financially.
