COVID-19/ Coronavirus South King County & Eastside Mutual Aid "Offer Support" / Volunteer Form
Neighbors helping Neighbors. Mutual aid support for survivors, sick & disabled, immunocompromised, undocumented, black, queer, indigenous, and or people of color in South King County and Eastside.

Take the next 5 minutes to fill out this form! Once you do, we will be able to contact you via email and connect you with neighbors that you can shop and deliver groceries to.

We are a collective of people from neighborhoods and communities within the region of South King County & the Eastside building community care and power. We formed at the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic to provide support to those impacted by the pandemic. We share resources, support survivors in safety planning, and work to provide basic needs to folks, which include groceries, help paying bills, and forming fundraisers for those who need it.

**We center our work in abolition, that those most harmed by systems of power must be centered in creating new ways of caring for each other, and that our liberation AND our wellbeing are interconnected.**

"Mutual aid is “cooperation for the sake of the common good.” It’s getting people to come together to meet each other’s needs, recognizing that as humans, our survival is dependent on one another." - Mariame Kaba
