Join our partner Alaska Airlines and others in our community in supporting the the COVID-19 Response Fund hosted by Seattle Foundation. This fund is deploying resources to community-based organizations that are supporting local workers and families most affected by the Coronavirus crisis. The funds raised will provide grants to nonprofit organizations in order to aid communities with emergency assistance, financial support, healthcare, and childcare.
For years, Alaska Airlines has helped fly doctors, nurses and other medical personnel up and down the West Coast. Alaska Airlines has taken it one step further by recently transporting materials that will be used to create 210,000 hospital-grade masks for caregivers at hospitals across the western United States. Learn more about how they are supporting the 100 Million Mask Challenge and how you can help.

Support our nonprofit neighbors at Seattle Center through the COVID-19 Relief Fund.
Seattle Center thrives with support from the people who love it. With performances and fundraisers cancelled for the remainder of the seasons, these important arts and cultural groups and their employees need our help to weather this crisis and start to rebuild.
During this COVID-19 crisis, there is an urgent need to support our frontline health care workers, our most vulnerable neighbors and struggling small businesses. That's why Symetra is partnering with locally owned restaurants-and funding their time, talent and ingredients-to make and deliver 10,000 meals to homeless shelters and hospitals.
Join our partner Alaska Airlines in supporting the #MillionMealsChallenge to feed families left hungry by Coronavirus. Last week, the Alaska Airlines Foundation, an independent 501(c)(3) non-profit, pledged $200,000 to provide 896,000 meals to 14 local food banks across Alaska, Washington, Oregon, California and Hawaii. Together, they've donated over 1 million meals, but hope to double their impact by inviting employees and guests to join in, if they can. "Between now and the end of May, we're encouraging our guests, partners and employees to join us in the #MillionMealsChallenge to help fuel another 1 million meals for local food banks feeding our communities." said Diana Birkett Rakow, Alaska Airlines Vice President of External Relations.
