Encouraging your action and response:

  • Seattle Foundation COVID-19 Response Fund – Agencies should email covid19@seattlefoundation.org with agency needs so they will be considered to receive some of the COVID-19 Response Fund dollars.
  • United Way of King County – We are encouraging agencies to use the Request Help portal to post your volunteer/resource needs. Be creative (e.g. gift card drive, supply drive, etc.)! We will be promoting the Give Help portal to the broader community via our cities’ communications channels.
  • Public Health Survey – Please take a few minutes if you have not already done so to complete the public health survey about your needs/gaps. Cities will be requesting this information and hope to learn how we can support you and work together during this time.

Volunteers needed at the Tukwila Pantry

The Tukwila Pantry serves about 25% of the Tukwila residential population.  That’s a lot of food that moves into food bags and into peoples’ homes.  That’s more than a million pounds of food a year.  Along with moving this amount of food there’s the need to help package bulk items into smaller sizes, stock shelves, data entry, breaking down boxes, sorting produce and canned goods, registering clients, picking up food at their source, helping to raise funds.   Tukwila Pantry needs volunteer help to help meet the tremendous need to keep people from going hungry.  If you are interested please contact the Pantry at 206-431-8293.
