Steps you can take if you believe you are a victim of fraud (from the ESD website):
A large amount of the canned/dry goods we receive each year comes from your donations through the National Post Office Food Drive each May. Unfortunately, this event has been canceled due to COVID19 and it will have a huge impact on our food bank. 
We need your help by participating in our Drive Thru Food Drive! June 6th, 10AM to 4PM in the front parking lot of Real Life Church (26201 180th Ave SE, Covington).
In addition to individual donations, we are encouraging businesses to get involved! If you want to be a drop-off site, let us know! The top 3 businesses that collect the most pounds will receive a grand prize!
We are collecting non-perishable canned/dry goods, diapers, personal hygiene products, and paper products. Email for more info!
Annually we have a joint luncheon with Maple Valley-Black Diamond Chamber!
"VIRTUAL VISITS" via Zoom on 6/17! 11:30-12 is our normal general hangout time (just done virtually) then at 12 noon our official "Virtual Visits" will begin! We look forward to engaging with you! "SEE" you soon!

"Safe Start Washington Governor Jay Inslee Governor Jay Inslee, in collaboration with the Washington State Department of Health, has established a data-driven approach to reopen Washington and modify physical distancing measures while minimizing the health impacts of COVID-19. This approach reduces the risk of COVID-19 to Washington’s most vulnerable populations and preserves capacity in our health care system, while safely opening up businesses and resuming gatherings, travel, shopping, and recreation. The plan involves assessing COVID-19 activity in the state along with health care system readiness, testing capacity and availability, case and contact investigations, and ability to protect high-risk populations." - Quoted from:
