The news can be distressing right now, but we know that there is good happening through this crisis. We know this because we have been the recipients of so many acts of kindness. Earlier this month we shared some of these with you. Here are more acts of Kindness that have happened since then.
We are grateful for our many partners supporting our meal program. Here is Abid from Only Serving Love (OSL) with Café Manager Chris dropping off pre-packaged meals. The meals are donated by Microsoft and we are so grateful to Elizabeth Seeley from OSL for coordinating the whole effort. As of yesterday, we have provided 3,128 Meals.
We are thrilled to now offer a mask to people along with meals when they come to our door. This is made possible by our incredible volunteers, especially the Japanese Presbyterian Church whose Members have contributed the majority of the masks we have shared.
Recovery Café partner Path with Art, has been providing tablets so their students can access PWA’s classes online. Program Manager Teresa dropped off a tablet for us to give to one of our Members who is engaged in their classes.
Immanuel Community Services who shared their brilliant solution for an outdoor hand-washing station. Here is ours.
Lastly, we will end with a beautiful and unexpected Act of Kindness. Spring has sprung as evidenced by the bright blue skies we are enjoying and these beautiful flowers given freely by Katie Simmons, Friendly Vang-Johnson, Cynthia Vongvang and The Hmong Association of Washington. It was a joyful touch to be able to offer flowers to everyone coming to
our doors for food!
We hope to share more of these Acts of Kindness with you as we all band together to make the best out of our current situation. Thank you to everyone who has helped here, whether or not you were featured in a picture above, made a donation, or contributed in some other way to the
healing work of Recovery Café.
