You’ll see us this summer and fall!

Summer is here. The weather is warm and nice.  

You may head to your favorite park for a nap in the shade. Or to one of the dozens of festivals and events planned in Pierce County.

You might see us!

Many ways and places

Maybe you’ll see us testing the water at a community pool. Or picking up diapers.

You also may spot us an event, parade or gathering in your neighborhood at one of our Community Engagement booths.

We want to get to know you and hear what’s on your mind. Because when we hear about what’s happening in a community, we can make sure we’re doing everything in our power to meet your needs. We may not know the answer. But we’ll quickly put you in touch with someone that does. 

You can learn more about all the ways we’re here to help you:
