Money raised for homeless

Money raised for homeless

Christine Davidson of the International District Rotary Club (on left) presents a check to Sharon Lee, executive director of the Low Income Housing Institute (center), to help homeless people living at Nickelsville.

The Seattle International District Rotary and the Seattle University Rotaract Club raised $9,400 to help homeless families and individuals living in Seattle’s Nickelsville, a homeless tent city located at 2020 S. Jackson Street. The property is owned by LIHI.

Since September of last year, up to 35 homeless men, women, and children sleep in tents and simple wood structures each night because emergency shelters are full and affordable housing is scarce.

Seattle University students in the Rotaract Club organized a Spring Banquet and Auction that brought in $5,000 for Nickelsville. Matching funds of $2,500 were donated by KeyBank Foundation.

Donations of food, flashlight batteries, camping supplies, and large garbage bags are being requested. (end)

The Village Report — The ins and outs of crossing borders in Southeast Asia

Our brown bus got to Phnom Penh right at 4 p.m. as promised. My son, husband, and I alighted on Monivong long before the official depot in the center of town. This was going to be a different kind of arrival, without the swarming of a thousand and one autorickshaw- and tuk-tuk-wallahs thinking we’d only just arrived in Asia that morning.

COMMENTARY: Dad, you’ll be missed!

COMMENTARY: Dad, you’ll be missed!

By James Wong
For Northwest Asian Weekly

James Wong, left, and his dad, King Kuen Wong

I didn’t think I would feel this way even six months ago, but I really miss my dad. We’ve had a rocky relationship for most of our lives.

I had never seen my dad in person until I was 8 years old. He escaped China when he was 22 and almost died twice. During their escape, they could only walk at night — afraid of being caught — and it was pitch dark in the mountainous wilderness. Once, he said something didn’t feel right, so he stopped. If he had taken one more step, he would have fallen off the side of a steep mountain. He also had to swim across the Hong Kong bay on plastic floating bags. Read the full story
