Our friends at the Kent Downtown Partnership are seeking Volunteers:

Calling All Volunteers…
KDP is busy putting our 2019 budget together and we want your expertise and time to help us make this a 2019 that we can be proud of. We are looking for more volunteers to help us make decisions and to help make things happen.

One of the reasons KDP has been so successful to date is the fabulous volunteers we have. However, our programs are growing and we need more minds and bodies to help make our activities and events something a variety of people would enjoy attending. Here is the list of our committees that explains what their efforts are, in hopes you will want to participate.

  • The Art Committee oversees the Third Thursday Art Nights, our Safety & Security Committee meets monthly with Kent Police Officers to discuss safety issues in downtown.
  • The Economic Development Committee plans our Downtown Breakfast Hour, where we educate and discuss the development happening in downtown Kent.
  • Our Marketing & Promotions Committee plan most of the events that the KDP puts on, as well as marketing our organization.

As you can see we have many options for volunteers and your input would be very appreciated.

We recently learned that the average age of people less than 5 minutes from downtown is 35 years and younger. By learning this we realize that we need suggestions and help getting in touch with this group, in hopes they will want to get involved and or attend our events. We believe in teamwork and look forward to having you work with us and our other outstanding volunteers.

Feel free to reach out to Jodi or Barb at [email protected] or 253-813-6976 if you are interested in joining our efforts.
