The Washington State Sikh Community would like to extend the offer of Providing Meals to First Responders and Free Taxi Rides or Grocery Delivery for the Elderly or Vulnerable without the means. We have currently been providing 3 meals a week at Ray of Hope Shelter in Auburn, WA, and will be feeding ER/ICU Staff at Evergreen Hospital and Swedish Hospital, and will be serving at Tacoma Multicare on April 1st.
These are challenging times for us all and this is where we need to come together as a community and help those taking care of us and to give back to our elders. We want the community to let us know where and how we can help so we can serve those in need.
This effort is being coordinated by Degh Tegh Community Kitchen and United Sikhs Non-Profit Organization with strong roots here locally and nationally. Both organizations regularly provide aid, meals and humanitarian support where needed. Degh Tegh Community Kitchen Youth Volunteers provides 500 hot meals every Saturday in Auburn, Seattle and Tacoma. United Sikhs has many initiatives going on including a hotline for Aid in the US, feeding 26,000 people in New York affected by Coronavirus, opened a food bank in England UK to provide staples those in need and educating people about the virus and providing hand sanitizer in India.
For Taxi, A1 Seattle Taxi is generously providing the service of Rides of Grocery Delivery. Please call 206-466-9500
For Meals or Other Aid contact United Sikhs – Tanvir Singh 206-788-5906 or Degh Tegh Community Kitchen – Aman or Paul Singh 253-245-3260 or email Help@DeghTegh.com
We are proud to be a part of the Washington State Community and it’s our responsibility to give back. The largest Langar (Community Kitchen) is found at the Golden Temple in Punjab, India where typically 100,000 people a day eat for free. Living in America this is the least that we can do for all those taking care of us or those enduring hardship in this tough time.
