Join us in thanking Metropolitan King County Council Chair Joe McDermott who orchestrated the donation of a retired Metro Transit Vanpool van to VWP!
“As it has for twenty years, the van donation program provides an opportunity for County resources to continue their service to residents,” said McDermott. “I am excited to support the unique and important work of organizations like the Vashon Wilderness Program … as they serve youth on and off the island.”
Thanks to this new addition, we’ll be able give more children and teens from Seattle, Tacoma, and Kitsap vital nature connection and leadership skills to help them live, learn, and lead with joy, vitality, peace, passion, and care.
Teens in our Earth Walker Teen Adventure program have already started enjoying the van, and we’re looking forward to welcoming more campers this summer who need a ride to attend our programs.
Congratulations to our friends at at Journeymen Institute who also received a van!
