Lenmwo Kosraean family and friends

It was a pleasure to introduce our brother and Deacon Mr. Driskell Jack, his wife Tanya along with LM Frank and wife Hanna to our Pacific Islander Community Association of Washington Executive Director and dear brother Joseph Seia and our team of volunteers, including sister Rosi. We’ve been trying to get our brothers and sisters from the Kosraean community to join us, and to finally have them at the site in Kent was really a moment to celebrate. I was very very happy to see them there and looking forward to continue working with Deacon and family to help our KSA community in whatever small ways we can. 

We now have served and serving our Marshallese, Chuukese, and Kosraean communities alongside our Polynesian brothers and sisters. I am on the look out for our brothers and sisters from the Pohnpean and Yapese communities. I think I finally found my Yapese family, but I need help locating our Pohnpean brothers and sisters. We have enough FREE FOOD to go around, so please reach out to us. 

It’s not only food we’re giving. We want to socialize with everyone and have fun as a Pasifika family. So, please if you have time, come on out and help your brothers and sisters manning the Food distribution sites. We need more youths and elders too to come on out and join us. As you all know, we now have 3 Distribution sites, one in Tacoma, Kent and Everett. Pick a location and go give a couple of hours volunteering.

Have you filled out your census?

If not, please do so at your earliest convenience. I spoke directly to our Chuukese brothers and sisters in the video below.
