Fabulous Volunteer and Local Hero

Mona Al-Dalaan shares why she volunteers with Unite!:
“I moved to Washougal so my children could experience the charm and pace of a small town community. Parenting is the most important job one can have and it just makes sense to be prepared with a toolbox of skills to better communicate with my children. So, I enrolled in a free parenting workshop offered by Unite! Washougal Community Coalition and have been volunteering ever since!

Thank you, Mona, for all you do for our community!
