Construction Apprentice Program Opportunity

ANEW will be holding an information session on Monday, September 16 at  2 pm at the Sky Valley Senior and Community Center, 617 1st St. Sultan.  All people who are interested in beginning a path to a family-wage career in construction are invited to attend and learn how to enroll in the last co-ed ANEW training program of 2019.  The program starts October 7, 2019 and will be held in Marysville.  Mandatory try-outs for the program will be held in Marysville on October 3, 2019.

ANEW is the oldest, continuously running pre-apprenticeship program in the nation with a unique and successful reputation for training people to enter the construction industry. ANEW partners with over 17 apprenticeship programs in the Puget Sound region. 

One of their recent students who now works as a Laborer for Shamrock Company quoted, “If it wasn’t for ANEW and their program helping me get the supplies I need and set me up in order to be successful, I probably wouldn’t be as far ahead as I am today. I am truly grateful.”

If you have any questions about ANEW, please attend the information session or feel free to reach out to them directly at (425) 374-2796. You can also visit their website at www.anewaop.org.


Volunteers of America Western Washington, Sky Valley S.E.N.D. Program Launches First Fundraiser “Dinner’s In The Bag”

The Sky Valley Elderly Nutrition Delivered (SEND) program at Volunteers of America Western Washington in Sultan is a free service through which home-bound seniors or disabled persons are able to receive nutritious and easy-to-heat prepared meals right to their door. 

The SEND program has been fortunate to make immeasurable impact on the lives of seniors in the short timeframe it’s been running. Focusing on nutrition and consistent meals, seniors are able to increase their energy and experience more activities, interact with more people, and live a healthier life. A client who had struggled through countless medical issues and could not afford in-home care shared her story with us when she was well enough to exit the program:

“A year ago I came home from seven weeks on life support and rehab. I was limited mentally and physically. I could not stand or sit upright long enough to scramble an egg.  Your program kept me so well-fed I was able to restore physical capabilities and mental processes. I still have far to go, but I was given hope!”

This valuable program needs your help! Did you know that your $5 donation can help provide five meals to a senior? From now through October 25, VOAWW employees, volunteers, and program participants will be collecting donations of $5 to put “Dinner in the Bag” for a SEND recipient. Our goal is to have 100 bags purchased, providing 500 meals for seniors. 

Volunteers of America Western Washington is a registered 501 c 3, so your gift is tax-deductible. You may mail your check to the PO Box below, hand a check to a VOA representative, or donate online at www.voaww.org under the “donate” tab. Be sure to select the SEND program!

Furthering Prevention in Sultan

Monday September 16, 4:30pm at City Hall Council Chambers

“There is no power for change greater than a community discovering what it cares about.” – Margaret J. Wheatley

Youth drug and alcohol use can be very problematic and can lead to all sorts of costs down the road. So how do we prevent them from using? Kids listen, and if we unite to communicate expectations around not using drugs or alcohol, it greatly impacts the amount that go on to use. Sultan is a wonderful town with a rich history and strong community bonds, and there are so many individuals that care about the youth in this town. Let’s unite together to bring prevention services here and prevent the use and abuse of alcohol, tobacco and other drugs. With the powerful influence a trusting adult can make in a youths life in protecting them from drugs/alcohol, it’s an easy choice to make. By engaging in power of prevention we can save more than just money, but lives. Come join the Sultan Prevention Coalition at our next meeting, Monday September 16 at City Hall Council Chambers. Your voice matters and they are listening.
