Better Together Than Divided
Though we are seeing light at the end of the Covid-19 pandemic, the toll Covid is taking on families across our region remains strong. Together Washington’s belief is that we are better together than divided. It remains as important as ever that we continue building unconventional partnerships, such as the ones we have forged with Community Health Plan, Seattle University, Seattle Public Schools, UPower, Americorps, and Cascadia Produce. These relationships can help offset the impact of Covid-19. With them, we can see our community flourish. And with individual action, we can ensure the survival of our families.
This is why we are serving Family Emergency Kits to the most vulnerable families in our region, which feed a family of five for one week. Not only do we get the opportunity to serve and care for those in need, but through it, we can bring partners together in a way that strengthens the social fabric of our region. Over the course of the last 11 months we have served 55,000 marginalized individuals. And that number is increasing by the week.
We are now expanding to three sites across the region. To volunteer at a distribution event, click here.
