Putting Family First

The Family First Community Center Foundation, along with Safeway, NW Harvest & its network of Community Partners, and other local organizations have all come together to bring immediate relief to local Seattle-area families and senior citizens adversely affected by our current global pandemic. Please consider making a direct donation to our fund to support our neighbors in need.

NOTE: 100% of the proceeds raised will go directly to serving the community during this time of need.

A Message From Doug Baldwin

Whether you are here in the Seattle area, or anywhere else in the world, we have all been affected by COVID-19. I think I can speak for the majority in that our main concern is the health of our families and community. There is no greater time than now to show our compassion for each other. To the brave men and women on the frontlines combating the spread of the virus — Thank you! We owe a great deal of gratitude to you for your sacrifice.

Inevitably there will be some that are more impacted by the disruption of this pandemic. As a community, this is where we unite together to support those individuals and families. We have identified two ways in which we can step up right away:

  • Donations: There are a number of organizations that are providing lunch service for kids while school is out. They are seeing a growing demand for their lunches, but are also seeing suddenly unemployed families who need help with all meals. We have partnered with Safeway to support these organizations and families by providing food and gift cards to purchase groceries. Please consider donating on our website as all donations will go directly towards funding this effort.
  • Delivery Volunteers: Due to the nature of the virus, there are vulnerable members of our community who cannot get access to food. Our army of volunteers will coordinate with NW Harvest to deliver food to the door steps of those that need it most. Please consider joining us as a volunteer (en Español).

As we get to work, we appreciate all the support and commitment to helping the community in this time of great need. Despite the challenges that lie ahead, I am confident we will rise from this moment stronger and more united. Thank you for taking action to support the well-being of all.

Best Wishes,
