The Post Office and Sunday Clean Up

Sunday, September 16th

Sunday, September 16th – 1pm – 2pm – meet in front of the Lake City Post Office

LCFF has been conducting community clean up efforts in Lake City for the past five years. We are proud of the hundreds of bags of trash collected and give heartfelt thanks to all those that have taken a little time to come out and support these efforts. LCFF provides gloves, bags, grabbers and safety vests. While it is common to find needles we are always sure to instruct our participants not to pick up needles. We ask that people let one of our leads know where they are so that we can take care of it and record it. These are family friendly events and safety is our top priority. The clean up portion of the work provides part of the goal for this program. While trash pick up is an ongoing effort; the conversations, connections and community spirit is a huge part of why these gatherings are so important.

This Sunday we have chose to meet in front of the Lake City Post Office. The area around the post office and the Panos properties has been a very hot topic on local social media as well as being featured on KOMO and Q13 news. We felt that this meeting place gives us an opportunity to connect with neighbors who might be interested in discussing the area with others in hopes of authentic dialog around solutions and strategies.

Please know that LCFF is in contact with our Seattle City Council Member, Debora Juarez, the Mayor’s office and King County Health to ensure that the issues around human waste is being addressed around the area of the post office and the Panos property. All have committed to responding to the issues and we are hopeful for a resolution that will address a complex set of circumstances.

We hope that you will consider joining us this Sunday
