    What's New This Week

    FOOD DELIVERY:

     

    United Way continues to offer food delivery to Seattle and King County residents.  To sign up, there is a multilingual form to use.  They also have a nice round up similar to our Get Help page of current pandemic support for rent, U-Haul storage credit for unexpected moves, free cell phones, South Seattle initiatives, and more.

     

    TUTORING:

    • Seattle Public Library Online Tutoring

    The Seattle Public Library is launching Tutor.com.  Tutor.com has over 3,000 highly vetted expert tutors, who can help youth with schoolwork, tutoring and academic coaching in a variety of subjects in a safe and secure online classroom. 1-1 help is available in math, writing, science, history, foreign languages, college essay writing, Advanced Placement (AP) courses and more. 

    Service is available 7 days a week, 2-10 p.m. in Spanish/English and 4-7 p.m. in Vietnamese

    • Students can use their microphone to communicate with tutors, we hope this will be easier for English language learners
    • Teens and adults can use this service to get help with filling out job applications and writing a cover letter and resume.
