"I caught up with Bernie the other day after hearing his company was the newest Renton Chamber member, and being keyed into all the fantastic things they’ve been doing for our community. Amber Saxby, project manager for the Rock, jumped in immediately once she became aware of the need for assistance in making meals at the Renton Salvation Army. She also helped to commit her team to further support at the food bank. Their team got on board to help with meal deliveries after hearing about South Kind Food Fighters Coalition. They have had their hands full driving between the Tukwila food bank and up to King and Bunny’s, where Jason Parker is helping out by hosting 17 fridges full of food for the Chamber and Renton Schools. With literally no notice, this team has jumped in when the community needed them most."

"(Jim) Stoffer, a Sequim School Board member, also reached out to an acquaintance, Bernie O’Donnell, who worked on the school district’s central kitchen project, to see if he could find mask-making supplies. O’Donnell, who operates his new business Rock Project Management in Renton, said his team went looking for supplies and paid for thousands of ties, bands and other items for masks. He said while working with the Sequim School District he could see there was a high caliber of people here. They were delivered later that day and handed out at Trinity United Methodist Church, Stoffer said."

"I wanted to take this opportunity to thank all of you for the countless hours you have dedicated to families in our community. In the past three months, 50 volunteers have donated over 1000 hours of their time and have delivered at least 12,325 meals!... Your time and energy have helped so many in need during these difficult times!"
