Just wanted to express my gratitude and appreciation to the President and Vice President of the First Chuukese Washington Women Association for all the hard work they put in to ensure our folks in Longview, Washington are also taken care of.
As you can see in the slide show below, our sisters, Tripple and Ritae are busy getting supplies ready for our folks down in Longview, Washington. You may wonder where did they get all these food supplies, so let me try to answer that for you.
Here in the King County area which included the larger Seattle, there are many Non-profit organizations working together to take care of the needs of the community. Many of us are members of these organizations. This specific load was picked up from our Pacific Island Community Association of Washington (PICAWA) and now stored in my garage, ready to be delivered all the way down to Longview, which I would say, is about 2 or so hours of drive.
If you live in the Longview area and in need of some food, please reach out to us so we can arrange for you to get some. This load will be delivered next week, if everything goes as planned. We would love to serve everyone that needs the help, so please don’t hesitate to reach out to us, either by using the Contact Us page here on ifagalz or on the fcwwa.org website. You can also call our business phone line at 253-944-1046. I am sure my husband won’t mine me sharing the phone number here. lol.
And speaking of our business, let me say if you need help with your personal or business website, don’t sweat it. Call my husband, Cal, and he’ll for sure help you out. Just wanted to throw that out so he doesn’t think I am using the business phone for nothing. 🙂 We gotta support each other, right.
One more thing, we will have a LIVE interview on Facebook on Monday, September 12th at 6:30 PM. We will talk everything from COVID19, our FCWWA organization and its services, Housing Assistance, Health Insurance, etc… We have a VERY SPECIAL guest, his honorable and our very own Consulate General, Joe Enlet. Please reserve the time and spot so you can join us live. My husband will host the Chuukese Talk Live, bless his heart.
If you live in King County and wanted to take the SCAN Corona Virus test, please reach out to us so we can give you the PRIORITY code. The code will give you priority in getting the test. As of now, they only give out a certain number of tests each day for the public, so if you don’t have the priority code, you may not be able to get one. Our Pasifika Island group is disproportionately being affected by the virus being the reason we ‘re given this priority code. Please take advantage of it to protect yourself and your family. My husband explains how to take the test in the video here. Please watch it at your convenience.
Let me take this opportunity to remind of our folks how important it is that we follow all the guidelines given by local authorities on this pandemic as well as the fire situation we now found ourselves in.
I will be back to work soon here, so I may not have a lot of time to come and share what is happening in our little world here in Seattle, but I remain hopeful and committed to help wherever and whenever I can, with my sisters of the FCWWA.
I am sure membership is open to all Chuukese women living in Washington State so please reach out to the TEAM and help us help our community.
I need to remind our folks in King, Snohomish, and now Pierce counties that our Pacific Islander Community Association of Washington (PICAWA) has FREE FOOD DRIVE for our Pasifika families. You are encouraged to come on out and get food. You can visit our website at picawa.org to get more detail information or reach out to me or my husband and we’ll do everything we can to share the dates, times and locations to you.
Following are more readings for your pleasure.
