COVID-19 March 23 Update

Supporting SODO Businesses and Our Community

The last two weeks we have posted several updates, resources, and news about COVID-19 in our region. While we will continue to share information as we see the situation unfold, today we wanted to do something a little different.

In this email you will find information about SODO Businesses who are still operating and how you can support them. Many of our restaurants, breweries, and wineries are still operating using take-out and delivery.

You will also see how many SODO businesses are stepping up and supporting our community in need like OB Williams donating unused face masks to health care workers and Scotty’s Juice donating juice to Northwest Harvest’s SODO Community Market.

Finally, if you are looking for ways to help, there is a list of opportunities looking for to donations and supplies to support those in need during COVID-19 located in the news section of our website.

Thank you and please do not hesitate to reach out!
