Don’t Stop Believin’ Fundraising Campaign
Tuesday, March 24, 2020 - Tuesday, June 30, 2020
Since 1980, the PNA has built, engaged, and supported our diverse community through programs, services, and activities that have connected neighbors and fostered civic engagement. This mission has been our guiding principle for the past 40 years, and it continues to guide us as we work to overcome together the challenges we face today with COVID-19.
We find tremendous hope in the kindness, generosity, and love of the many PNA community members working to see us through this difficult time. This is a defining moment for the PNA and our community. Our efforts today and the months ahead will support our neighbors and community. Though we are standing six feet apart, we can do this together.
What is the PNA doing now?
Although our buildings are closed, we are making efforts to re-work services and programs we provide the community. Our Hot Meal Program that serves our most vulnerable and mostly unsheltered neighbors is offering grab-and-go meals. The Greenwood Senior Center social worker is holding phone counseling sessions with participants. The PNA Village is continuing to assist our elders who are aging at home. We’ve launched a “physical distancing” shopping and eating guide to support local businesses. We are also in conversation with the Seattle Public Schools to re-open our Whittier Kids childcare to serve our local essential workers free of charge. For the Phinney Center regulars who charge their phones in our building, we put out an extension cord so they could charge outside. We are exploring ideas to bring the community together virtually, so stay tuned for that–and if you have any virtual events you’d like to see, we’d love to know!
At the PNA, we Don’t Stop Believin’!
How you can help now
We are moved and inspired by the outpouring of offers to help as we work to slow the community spread of COVID-19 and serve those most impacted by it. Your individual actions will the difference. To ensure we move resources as efficiently as possible and respond to needs of communities most impacted, we are not considering restricted donations at this time. This direct appeal was created in hopes to support the entire PNA by providing a way to coordinate as many resources as possible. Below are the areas of our most critical needs, as we continue to serve our PNA community.
Donate to the PNA
Your investment in the community and the PNA has never been more important. The cancellation of regular programming and fundraising activities has a significant impact on the financial health of your PNA. Program revenue and fundraising events provide more than half the revenue needed to sustain the PNA you love, and each date we are closed represents an unrecoverable loss, deeply affecting our ability to staff our team, and threatens the PNA’s very existence. Your generosity will help determine the continuity of our programs and services, as well as the very sustainability of the PNA for posterity.Donate Now
Gift cards for families
We are collecting grocery and drug store gift cards to distribute to low-income families in our area. At this time, we are distributing the cards through a partnership with the Seattle Public Schools. As we continue to receive more cards, we will partner with other community-based organizations such as the YMCA and the Boys & Girls Club that have experience with providing people and families with services and support.Get Gift Cards
Amazon.com wish list for the Hot Meal Program
The PNA Hot Meal Program provides three meals a week to our most vulnerable neighbors. However, our program partner has dramatically reduced the amount of donated food due to COVID-19, thus we created an Amazon wish list of items to help fulfill the increased need.Order from Amazon.com
