EDITOR’S NOTE: We often publish requests for volunteer help – and over the years, some have asked, what about a regular feature listing such needs? Fauntleroy resident Judy Pickens, who volunteers her time and talent to a variety of endeavors including local schools, is gathering and reporting information on volunteer needs at West Seattle schools where the need is greatest, and shares it here periodically.

If you have resolved to help more in the community during 2013, area schools invite you to consider investing a couple of hours a week (or more!) to boost student learning.
Whether the task is tutoring math or putting up bulletin boards, every school volunteer makes a difference, for both students and teachers. An e-mail to the address given will bring you more information about any of the following opportunities to lend a hand during the new year:
