Are you a native speaker of Russian or Ukrainian?
WA Department of Health is looking for Russian and Ukrainian speakers to help combat vaccine hesitancy in these communities. The most recent data shows that COVID vaccination rates in these communities is around 4-7%. If you speak either of these languages, you could use those skills to make a massive public health impact in these communities. If you are interested in joining the organizing listserv or to find out more, contact email@example.com.
We are looking for volunteers each month as we cook and/or purchase food that will provide dinner for homeless teens in the area.
Please consider signing up to make, prepare and/or purchase a main dish, vegetables, fruit, rolls, bottled water or other drinks. Slots are also available to sign up for the packaging team who puts all the food together the night of. The church does have a warmer so you are welcome to bring food that the packaging team can reheat for you if necessary.
You are welcome to sign up for as many slots as you like until they are all filled (for example, if you want to bring 24 bottles of water/juice/seltzer, just sign up for two slots). Food will be dropped off at the University Lutheran Church (1604 50th St. NE) on Sunday. The ideal drop off time is between 6pm and 6:30pm. Give them a call when you arrive at 206-229-0813 and they will help you bring the food into the church.
If you are feeling unwell or have been in contact with someone who is COVID – 19 positive, please do not sign up to cook.
Preferably, items will be prepared and dropped off in new (clean), disposable foil trays. If cooking, please be mindful of keeping food and cooking materials sanitary. In general, it is best to not use nuts in your cooking to accommodate those teens with allergies.
