Jan 21st, 2021 | By | Category: Lifestyles

Tacoma and Seattle are two of the three Washington cities whose residents rank among the most generous in the United States, according to a survey.

Vancouver also is in the top 10 most-giving cities based on 12 indicators of 12 key indicators of philanthropy, including from charitable donations, volunteering, and number of food banks.

In the survey by LawnStarter, a national outdoor services provider, Vancouver ranked fifth, Seattle seventh, and Tacoma ninth. While strong in volunteerism and participation in local organizations, part of their high scores could be attributed to need, including a large homeless population, the survey reported.

The rest of the top 10 was led by Minneapolis, Minn., followed by its sister city St. Paul (second), Portland, Ore. (third), Salt Lake City, Utah (fourth), Boston, Mass. (sixth), Washington, D.C. (eighth), and Baltimore, Md.
