Press release

Information from the WCCDA

The White Center Community Development Association (WCCDA) is gearing up for the 2015 Spring Clean event to take place May 16th 2015. White Center Spring Clean is an opportunity for volunteers and residents to take part in an annual spruce up of White Center through projects aimed at cleaning up and beautifying the neighborhood.

“Spring Clean is a hands-on way to get involved in making your community, literally, a better place. Whether it’s gardening, graffiti removal, bringing in more art or whatever is identified as a community need: everyone in White Center benefits from having a neighborhood with cleaner and improved spaces to show that people in this community care about where they live and/or run a business,” says White Center CDA’s business district manager, Vy Nguyen. “Spring Cleans are fun and a great way to connect with others that care about community, plus a way to score a free I ‘heart’ White Center t-shirt!”

Spring Clean projects come from the community, as WCCDA supports resident-led action in White Center’s development. Each day will start at the White Center CDA office (605 SW 108th St. Seattle 98146) with a light breakfast before volunteers go to their project assignments. Past projects have included: gardening at various sites around White Center, trash pick-up in White Center’s business district, graffiti removal, as well as painting murals throughout the neighborhood. WCCDA’s Spring Cleans brings in close to 300 volunteers for 20-25 projects each year.  If you have an idea or see a need in the White Center community for a Spring Clean project or if you’d like to volunteer and get involved in the community, register online at: TBD or contact Julia Bautista at Julia@wccda.org.

Sincerely,

wccda-dir-sig




Sili Savusa/Executive Director

Registration for Spring Clean is now closed, thanks to more than 630 volunteers who signed up this year!

Last year 400 volunteers hauled away four tons of garbage across 70 neighborhood blocks.  This year will be even better - keep an eye out for volunteers this Saturday, and be sure to thank them.

This year, volunteers will be working on projects such as removing invasive species at Hicks Lake Park, painting the picnic shelter at Steve Cox Park, planting vegetables at the White Center Food Bank’s garden, neighborhood trash pick-ups, and many others.

The White Center CDA would like to thank our funders for their generous support: Boeing Employees Credit Union, White Center Chamber of Commerce, Waste Management, King County Parks and Recreation, King County Dept. of Corrections, King County Housing Authority, King County Food and Fitness Initiative, Impact Capital, Seattle Public Utilities, World Vision, Southgate Roller Rink, Albertson, and Arrowheads Garden.

Family Connections is a project of the White Center CDA that helps families become economically self-sufficient and links children to early learning and educational opportunities.  Sixty families are enrolled in our program at White Center Heights and Mount View Elementary Schools. The families were recommended by their school as benefiting from additional support from our Family Ambassadors, CDA bilingual staff, who help them connect with their child’s teacher and school in their home language, as well as parenting classes and leadership training.


The White Center CDA is the only neighborhood intermediary that seeks to bring together residents and providers in community engagement and advocacy efforts.


Of White Center’s 32,000 residents, half are people of color.  One in six people in White Center live in poverty, and one in three do not earn a living wage.  Sixty percent of children at three of the four White Center Schools are eligible for the Free/Reduced Price lunch program, which is three times higher than the King County average.


From one of CDA’s Family Ambassadors

Hello, my name is Miguel Diaz and I have two children, a daughter of five years and a baby of 15 months old. My daughter is studying in school [kindergarten] at Mount View Elementary.


This is my first year in Family Connections.  Family Connections is a way to help my community, to have contact with the families of my community and to know their needs and concerns.
I am from Mexico City and have been in the United States for six years. I was studying computers and English at school in my country - it’s like a community college but life is hard there.   I was thinking for my wife and my children. I wanted to provide for my family, and give my kids a good life and education. I am trying to learn the language - it was hard at first because I didn’t know English.  My wife has a sister here in Seattle so we moved here.

I like to help families - help them talk to the teachers; I am excited!
