SEW GOWNS?
Shuksan Healthcare workers are in need of isolation gowns. They have asked for the community to make gowns.  Old sheets are an acceptable fabric.  A free pattern is available at 

https://www.peekaboopatternshop.com/isolation-gown/. The pattern calls for ribbing at the cuffs but elastic works as well. People can bring to my house and I will pass them on. (Gowns can also be dropped off at Shuksan if that is easier for you.)

GOODS NURSERY AND PRODUCE AND GOODS LOCAL BREWS
Goods Nursery and Produce at the corner of Northwest & Elm is open with all your gardening essentials. We have local honey, Joe’s veggie and strawberry starts, herbs, pansies, compost and more! We are sanitizing all surfaces, enforcing social distancing among shoppers and disinfecting constantly. Cory is there daily from 9-4PM.
    Goods Local Brews is offering a growler exchange. Bring in your own growler and we will exchange it with a clean, sanitized one with a new cap. Check in with Cory from 9-4PM at the produce stand and he can fill your growler for you. Thank you all for your continued support through this very difficult time. We look forward to when we can open our doors again to the community! Stay safe and healthy!

EDITOR’S CORNER
I have learned that some of our essential workers in Whatcom County pay taxes but will get no stimulus check. The people who work the fields to raise and harvest the food we eat are often among them. Many hundreds are out of work till the strawberries are ready for harvest. I heard about a national campaign inviting people, if they can afford it, to donate part of their stimulus check to help those families. I want to donate to local families, so I will donate to Community to Community. You’re welcome to join me.

Make checks payable to
Community to Community or C2C and mail to –
203 W. Holly, Suite 311,
Bellingham, WA 98225

or go to

www.foodjustice.org

and use the PayPal donation button – but there will be a percentage taken from the amount you donate. There are other organizations also helping with this issue nationally, but I focused on Whatcom County, where we live.

Love/Fl!p
