Earth Day Fair Committee
We need your help in planning the biggest event of the year! Volunteers can help work on venue logistics, recruit new vendors, get donations for the silent auction, and help advertise the event in our community. Volunteers who are bilingual in English/Spanish would be especially helpful! We are looking to better include the Latinx community at this annual event. And of course, when the event comes (Saturday closest to Earth Day, April 22nd), you can help make sure the day goes smoothly.
This committee meets November through April, starting once a month, then moving to every-other week at the beginning of the year, and finally weekly in the few weeks leading up to Earth Day in late April. We meet in the evenings from 5:30-6:30, typically on Tuesdays, in-person at the Mercantile downtown Wenatchee (Zoom available). Volunteer time commitment: varies depending on season, from 2-10 hours a month.
Maybe not the most glamorous work, but possibly the most important. Be a part of a team that enables us to reach out mission. In the fundraising committee, we work with the board of directors to set goals and reach them through fundraising events, growing our membership program, encouraging individual donations, and adding more business sponsorships.
This committee meets just every-other month in the evening on Zoom on various weekdays. Volunteer time commitment: 1-3 hours a month.

Partnerships & Outreach Committee
This committee brainstorms ideas of how to get involved in our community, especially through partnerships with other local organizations and businesses. Plan fun events like Green Drinks, educational workshops, and involvement in community events like the Toward Zero Waste at Apple Blossom efforts.
This committee meets at the Mercantile (Zoom available) once a month from 4:30-5:30, typically on Mondays or Tuesdays. Volunteer time commitment: 2-4 hours a month.
Waste Wizard Committee
Join our team of wizards by continually improving this tool, plus working to increase the number of people who use it. We spread the word by thinking of creative, low-cost ways to get the word out about the Waste Wizard. We are especially interested in help from Latinx folks, as we would like to increase usage of the Waste Wizard in Spanish.
This committee meets at the Mercantile (Zoom available) during the workday, about every 6 weeks, on Thursdays from 10:30-11:30. But even if you can’t make it to meetings, we can use help putting up fliers around town and passing out bookmarks at events. Volunteer time commitment: 2-4 hours a month.
