The Leschi Community Council meeting tonight will give neighbors an opportunity to learn more about the possible elimination of Metro bus route 27, which serves Leschi, due to Metro’s budget shortfall. Join various “experts” at the meeting to learn what you can do to help save the route. Leschi has continuously been served by transit since 1888, the year before Washington’s state constitution was ratified.
Rebuilding Together Seattle brings volunteers and communities together to help low income homeowners live in warmth, safety, and independence. They serve low income homeowners who are elderly, disabled, families with children, and/or veterans in need, as well as non-profit facilities. The Young Professionals Society is sponsored and staffed by Rebuilding Together Seattle, and is a service organization of young professionals who support RTS and its mission through community outreach, fundraising, networking, and volunteering on an annual basis to ensure the growth and strength of RTS.
This weekend on September 15 Rebuilding Together Seattle and the Young Professionals Society are going to repair a home in Leschi for a 70 year old woman, Ardis. Ardis lives alone and has some troubles walking, so they will be making her house as safe as possible for her. This project is sponsored by The Swinerton Foundation, and they will be: building a handrail for her front steps, replacing the glass in the back door, a couple of small security and plumbing fixes, clearing out some clutter, completing yard work, and some miscellaneous painting and cleaning.
It’s great to see this kind of work being done here in our community! Thanks go out to Rebuiliding Together Seattle and the Young Professionals! For more information on seeking help, donations, or volunteer work visit their website.
