She made sure 450 kids got school supplies this fall


Congratulations to Emily Wicks, the City of Marysville's Volunteer of the Month for October. 

Wicks volunteered her time for the 2018 'Stuff the Bus' drive that collected school supplies for more than 450 Marysville and Tulalip students. Due to some last-minute changes, a need arose for a volunteer to step up and lead the efforts for the back-to-school drive this year. Wicks jumped in to fill this role, coordinating not only the supply drive but also the distribution of materials to students. 

Wicks spent hours shopping, sorting school supplies and traveling between supply drop-off locations throughout the city. She ran all meetings for volunteers and oversaw barrel distributions. Through her leadership, the school supply drive was very successful and helped provide students with the resources they need to do well in school.

"Emily, I am pleased to honor you as Volunteer of the Month," Mayor Jon Nehring said in making the announcement at the Oct. 22 City Council meeting. "Thank you for all you do for Marysville and especially for youth in our community." 

In addition to her volunteer work during the Stuff the Bus drive, Wicks also has served on the city's Diversity Advisory Committee and with the Marysville Together Coalition. A Marysville native who continues to give back to her hometown, she also developed promotional materials for the Marysville 'Coats for Kids' drive currently underway and has been a longtime volunteer for the Marysville Community Food Bank. She has been an active member of Marysville Rotary and is a graduate of Leadership Snohomish County.
