Rotary Seattle NE partnered with RAI to make masks as well as scrubs for front-line workers during COVID, and then contributed to their #StopAsianHate campaign. In June Rotary Seattle NE presented RAI with a check for $2,300, bringing our Club's support for RAI projects to over $15,000.
Ming-Ming Tung Edelman has big dreams. Under her leadership, RAI created over 80,000 masks, and now has plans for new Afghan arrivals. She will speak not just to how she has helped RAI come this far, but how she sees RAI expanding in coming years, knitting immigrants ever deeper into our community as model citizens.
Murals help us see and remember the others around us as the dignified, proud people they were, and still are, if only on the inside. This mural targets the "Old Walls" in Lake City between the Homelss, the Hungry, or the Indigenous. and the rest of us.
This latest project is a collaboration with LIHI (Low Income Housing Institute), North Helpline, and SIHB (Seattle Indian Health Board). It is just one more bridge connecting the peoples of Lake City, our club's home community.
"Our two clubs have worked together for many, many years. I am most proud of what we are accomplishing for those in need in our community during the pandemic. Come share in the celebration of what our clubs are doing to improve the quality of life for children, families, seniors in North King County."
