Thank you to our volunteers!

On this national week of volunteer appreciation, special thanks go out to those who have stepped up to volunteer as part of the Kitsap County COVID-19 Emergency Operations Center (EOC) response. 

For over 13 months, volunteers served at our COVID-19 test sites, quarantine and isolation center, staging warehouse, severe weather shelters, food banks, vaccination clinics and towing trailers. During this time, these dedicated volunteers have logged over 16,600 hours of service time.

Elizabeth Klute, Kitsap County EOC Director and member of the COVID-19 Unified Command notes, “We simply could not have mounted, or been able to sustain, the level of emergency operations response that we have for the COVID-19 pandemic if it weren’t for the hundreds of volunteers who have and continue to, staff these efforts in Kitsap County. Thank you, thank you, thank you from the bottom of our hearts!”
