Thank you, Gates Foundation!

Day of Caring 09 19 14 27 enewsOn September 19, 2014, an energetic crew of Gates Foundation employees spent half their day scrubbing away at, not one, but two of the industrial-sized kitchens at our University District meal sites. It was all part of United Way’s Day of Caring, when 11,800 employees from local companies banded together to donate their time and energy to nonprofits throughout the region.

Day of Caring 09 19 14 17Teen Feed and our many volunteers are proud to serve youth 365 days a year, but that consistency in service can take a toll on the kitchens we serve from.  Periodic deep cleaning is a necessary and somewhat daunting task. Their go-getter grit and enduring positivity in tow, these Gates Foundation volunteers really rolled up their sleeves and left us with well-organized closets and bright-sparkling sinks, fridges, and countertops.

Thanks to the Gates Foundation for their valuable contribution to our work, cleaning our kitchens so that we’re better able to provide meals and support to homeless and unstably-housed youth in our community.
