United We Serve ~


Ellen b. with Michael Tetteh who came to the Seattle Sounders from Ghana via College in Santa Barbara.

Today I joined many volunteers to work side by side Sounders Soccer players at Hopelink Food Bank in Redmond, Wa. The Sounders Soccer F.C. in partnership with Seattle Bank host United We Serve Events each month. At the March Event at Hopelink Food Bank in Redmond  – we joined Sounders FC players Mike Seamon, Michael Tetteh, Josh Ford and Servando Carrasco as they volunteered from 2:30-4:00pm.  All of us volunteers portioned out servings of rice and oats which will be distributed to hungry families in East King County and will supplement Hopelink’s Emergency Feeding Services program.


Servando Carrasco, Michael Tetteh, Josh Ford, and Mike Seaman.

The 90 minutes flew by and there was a lot of friendly banter going back and forth. I ended up working with someone we have season tickets next to so it was fun to get to know him a little better.

I get to check one more thing off my 60 things to do in my 6oth year list! This was #30.

Photobucket replaced all my photos with ugly black and grey boxes and they are holding my photos hostage until I pay them lots of money. I’m slowly going through all my posts and trying to clean them up and replacing some photos. Such a bother.
