Annual Fundraising Dinner: always fun, heartfelt, genuine, unique and DELICIOUS thanks to our caterers The Wayside Cafe & Deli! The event includes family-style dinner, a short program and the opportunity to support the work we do in the community.
Over 400 community members from all faiths and backgrounds will meet together, united in one common goal – to end hunger here in our community and around the world. This year, in response to Covid 19, we enjoyed our first online fundraiser! The Thurston County CROP Hunger Walk will be back!
Every summer we gather to appreciate those who have gone above and beyond for our community. This sweet event focuses on awards for those who have performed outstanding service to their community.

“Virtually Together, Genuinely Thankful”
You are invited to join us for the 2020 Interfaith Works Thanksgiving event, "Virtually Together, Genuinely Thankful", on November 22nd at 2 p.m.
This year's Interfaith Works' Annual Thanksgiving event will feature musical contributions and short reflections across a wide variety of spiritual communities from our region. In addition, we will welcome regional, indigenous spiritual leaders Rev. Roy Wilson of the Cowlitz Tribe and Robert Satiacum Jr. of the Puyallup tribe who will lead us in an opening prayer in Chinook jargon and a land recognition and acknowledgement. Mrs. Lonnie Locke of the Thurston County Baha'i will be the featured speaker of the evening.
We will reflect on our sense of connection and community even in these times when we can't gather together in the same space. You are most cordially invited!
