Covid19 Vaccination Experience – Why you should get it asap.

Let me say this, many thank yous to the awesome Pacific Islander Community Association of Washington (PICAWA), specifically brother Joseph Seia for what he did and does for our community. Beautiful humans of PASIFIKA are, at least in the state of Washington, taken care of in the so many little ways PICAWA is pushing through, whether it be food drives, gift cards, housing assistance, covid tests, or vaccinations. PICAWA is at the forefront of keeping all of us a little safer. And I might add, get a little recognition from the other humans. Hehehe. Way to go PICAWA! Brothers Joseph and Toka can keep on bugging me. 

It’s in no small parts with PICAWA that we got the chance to get vaccinated a little earlier and I am here to tell you it’s ok to get yours too when your turn comes up. My wife, our youngest son and myself got the PFIZER vaccine and the only complaint I had was soreness at the spot. It was more hurtful than any other vaccines I had taken. Otherwise, nothing more beyond that.

Pasifika work continues, even in the rain

“You know Cal, the smiles I see when I delivered food to our Kosraeans made me so happy. Thank you and PICAWA for doing this for our Pasifika communities.” Deacon Driskell of Kosrae.


Our PICA family is at work again on this September the 17th of 2020, in the middle of the Pandemic and hardships that our community is facing. These foods and supplies will go a long ways in helping them out.

The day we got them fishes and more Pacific Islander Community Association Youth Members showed up to get more volunteer hours. It was an awesome feeling to caught fishes and got a lot of help too.
