Walk for Rice 2024

Help PNWJETAA fight hunger in our community by helping to raise funds for local food banks that provide culturally appropriate foods to those in need. This is one of the longest running and biggest community outreach programs that PNWJETAA supports! We are also inviting new 2024 JETs to join us, so please come out to meet them! This event is open to all PNWJETAA members as well as friends & family! Hope to see you on June 29th!
