COMMUNITY SPOTLIGHT The City of Renton was awarded four AmeriCorps VISTA volunteers to help serve the Benson, Sunset, and Downtown Renton communities. AmeriCorps is a vol- untary civic service program dedicated to strengthening the social fabric and safety of neighborhoods while breaking the cycle of poverty within the community. A variety of projects are currently underway including community organizing events and engage- ment opportunities, special projects like public art installations, and community relationship building. All of which will help the City and its local partners determine how they can better serve Renton residents. Renton's new VISTA volunteers will be con- necting with local residents, businesses, and community stakeholders on a variety of projects and initiatives in order to build organizational capacity within the com- munity through community investment efforts.
