posted 16 days ago by HomerHarrisHub from Homer Harris Hub COVID-19 Support Labels: volunteering needs

In the midst of the twin crises caused by the pandemics of racism and COVID-19, now more than ever is the time to support each other, especially those disproportionately affected by systemic racism and COVID-19. We continue to seek local opportunities for providing mutual aid and support and share them with you. If any move you to action, please contact the organizations listed below.

Deliver food and supplies to Kandelia-supported families Kandelia is looking for a few more volunteers to deliver food and supplies to our families. Most families live in South Seattle and North Seattle (Bitter Lake/Lake City). Our volunteers pick up the food from Seattle World School and deliver to 5-7 families. Contact: Baeda Agonafer: Baeda.agonafer@kandelia.org

Mask making: The new face-covering mandate in effect by Friday, 6/26, means that the SeattleYMCA Hunger Initiative program needs 30 masks for 2 of their locations. Contact: Nicole Lowe, nlowe@seattleymca.org; 206.223.163.

Paper Bags: Kandelia is back to accepting used paper grocery bags now that they have more storage space at Seattle World School. New is ideal, but used is ok too. Contact Lee Nolan, homerharrishub@gmail.com, if you have bags.

Clothing needed. A job coach at Valley Cities Behavioral Health Care on Rainier Avenue South has contacted us asking for clothing for a young man beginning a warehouse job. Sizing is 32 X 32.
