Mayor Bruce Harrell announced registration has opened for the second One Seattle Day of Service, which will be held in neighborhoods across the city on May 20.

Registration is now open for over 3,000 volunteer shifts at over 110 events throughout Seattle. More shifts and events will be added until the day of the event.

There are over 100 partner organizations participating in the One Seattle Day of Service representing a diverse group of public, private and non-profit partners and organizations, including El Centro de la Raza, FareStart, Chinatown-International District BIA, Belltown United, SODO BIA, Food Lifeline, Ballard Alliance, Seattle Sounders FC and Seattle Seahawks.
