Help members of the Aktion Club — a group of civic-minded adults with disabilities — raise money for community projects at Concerts on the Green.
Aktion members will serve concessions during the 7 p.m. concert. Mr. Miyagi, a band playing ’80s and ’90s classics, performs Tuesday on the Issaquah Community Center lawn.
Aktion resulted from collaboration between the Kiwanis Club of Issaquah and AtWork! The nonprofit organization helps people with disabilities learn skills and find jobs.
Aktion launched last month; 12 adults with disabilities joined the group at the inaugural meeting. The organization provides members with opportunities to participate in community events and projects.
Before the school year starts, Aktion members will help Kiwanians collect supplies and stuff backpacks for needy children.
