Do you need to be paid for your transportation or time?
We want to ensure that those who want to provide mutual aid do not face undue burden.
Yes. I cannot do this work without compensation.
Yes. I can donate my time but I would like to be reimbursed for gas/bus fare.
Could you help pay for the groceries / supplies?

No. I will need money ahead of time in order to buy the groceries.
No. I have the money to make the initial purchase, but I will need reimbursement for that purchase.
Yes. I will donate $50-$100 worth of groceries (one request for one household), but I may need reimbursement for more deliveries after that.
Yes. I will donate any groceries I pick up.
What type(s) of money transfer work for you?

Do you agree to trust that each person making a request knows their own needs? Can you agree to make deliveries without judgement?

Generally I can drop off groceries in Burien (last Sunday of each month)
If 2-3 other people dropped off groceries, I could also bring them to Burien (be a "hub")
I can shop for groceries, but cannot drive to Burien (need a "hub")
I can donate money for grocery reimbursements for others
If you live in the service area of another local mutual aid organization who we trust, can we share your information with them?
We will never share your information with advertisers, political candidates or parties, corporations, or the government.
Generally, what times are you available?
You may also leave more specific day and time schedules in the "Other" write in box.
What languages do you speak? Are you able to help us translate writing? Could you interpret a conversation in person or by phone?
This includes spoken and/or sign languages.

Do you have any accessibility needs you want to share, or need anything else to feel safe providing deliveries?
We will do the best we can, but we may not be able to support all requests.
Do you have other skills you would be willing to provide?
In the near future, we are considering expanding the types of mutual aid we offer. These might include transportation, emotional support, household assistance, childcare, dog walking, petsitting, etc. Please note access details when possible, like: are you able to be scent-free (

Any additional specifications, comments, or questions?
Thank you again for taking time to fill out a support form! We will contact you if and when we match you with a request. There are currently many times more volunteers than requests (thank you!!) so not everyone will be connected through us. You're encouraged to organize your own support networks, too!
Drawing from the brilliance, love and creativity we have for each other and looking to learn from those showing solidarity globally, including those in Wuhan, China, we aim to cultivate a politics of autonomy, solidarity, and mutual aid within a long-term, multi-generational horizon of decolonial, anti-capitalist, feminist, queer, and disability liberation.
No body is disposable.
Close all prisons, jails, juvies and detention centers now!
