Volunteer Appreciation Week

The Kitsap County Commissioners have proclaimed April 19-25 as Kitsap County Volunteer Appreciation Week in recognition of the more than 4,000 volunteers who annually contribute their time, talent, and expertise to county government.

Volunteers have made invaluable contributions to Kitsap County’s battle against COVID-19, including working with the Department of Emergency Management and other agencies to support the quarantine and isolation care center in South Kitsap, the drive-up testing site in Bremerton, and more.

Please join County Commissioners and staff in thanking volunteers who make Kitsap a better place to live, work, and play for all!


thank you


We are all looking forward to the state opening up again. We miss our family, our friends, and our way of life. We know that we will need to reopen gradually. Until then, we've got to hold the line. Read the latest Department of Health blog for more information.
