S.O.D.A. is a 100% Volunteer Organization!

All maintenance and improvement work at Marymoor is done by volunteers under the organization and supervision of S.O.D.A..  Our contract with King County Parks mandates specific liability indemnification requirements in regards to volunteers.  Volunteer work is done during planned Work Parties and all volunteers must sign a "Volunteer Liability Waiver" form before participating in a Work Party.  Work Parties are organized on an "as needed" basis.  Some volunteer projects are prescheduled in advance and some are "spur of the moment".  Some volunteer projects only need a small number of volunteers, others need large numbers.  Some projects need special volunteer "skills" and others are open to anyone.  Recruitment for small and special skill Work Parties is done from a "short list" of experienced volunteers.  Recruitment for Work Parties that are open to anyone who wants to participate is primarily done via our email database, postings on this website  and at times, with "PLEASE VOLUNTEER" flyers on sign boards throughout Marymoor Dog Park.  To be placed on S.O.D.A.'s email database, be sure to include your email address when you complete your S.O.D.A. membership/donation form.  S.O.D.A. is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization and your volunteer work does qualify for "Community Service" credit.  Note:  During Work Parties, volunteers must work together as a team under the supervision of S.O.D.A..  Please do not wander off on your own - stay with the group as directed - thank you!

YOU can be an EVERYDAY volunteer ... Join the S.O.D.A. "Clean Team"!

Not all S.O.D.A. members and supporters are able to attend the big maintenance and improvement Work Parties that S.O.D.A. organizes.  But everyone can be an everyday volunteer by helping to keep our Marymoor Dog Park CLEAN!  Join the hundreds of dog park "Clean Team" participants that regularly carry extra "pick up bags" and use them to pick up missed "poops" and litter.  Our Dog Park is a valuable resource and you can help treat it with care and respect by voluntarily doing regular EXTRA clean-up each time you visit the Dog Park.

S.O.D.A. needs your $upport!
