           WaMu Housing Volunteer Month, launched in 2003, is a
           community effort to improve and revitalize local

           beautification and renovation projects.

           Manager, Tigard will be available for comment.  She may
           also be reached on her cell phone at 503/310-4023.

           Ms. Judith George, homeowner, will also be available for
           interviews.

    WHEN:  Saturday, April 26 from 8 a.m. - 3 p.m.

    WHERE: 7625 SW 87th Avenue in Tigard

    WHY:   As the affordable housing crisis worsens in America, an
           increasing number of people are paying more than 50 percent
           of their income for housing or living in substandard
           housing or both. This means less available income for basic
           maintenance or other needs.

    This year marks the debut of Washington Mutual's national Housing
Volunteer Month. Washington Mutual employs over 1,400 (FTE) in Oregon.
