Community Care during COVID-19: Call to Action

Our Arleta Triangle Community Care Cabinet needs your help.

COVID-19 has made it harder for neighbors to connect in our usual places, including at the Arleta Triangle in the Mt. Scott Arleta Neighborhood. Last year, with a small grant from Southeast Uplift (our neighborhood coalition office), we installed some COVID-relief amenities including a vandal-proof hand sanitizer dispenser, a safely-distanced bench for resting, and a cupboard for supplies for our neighbors in need. Now, as we enter our second year of the pandemic, our community members are still in need and more volunteers can help us meet it. 

If you want to help us keep basic hygiene and warming supplies available to our neighbors, please click the link below to let us know your availability and how to contact you. Thank you for being part of the neighborhood and supporting each other.

Items that are welcome include toiletries, garments, first aid, and food items. Travel-size items are the most helpful. Please no worn used clothing unless like-new!
