The leaves are falling, the days are getting shorter, and the food trucks have packed up for the year. But things are still happening in Victory Heights. Have you seen our new mural? Designed and painted by local artist Daemion Kenyon (seen here, pressure washing with community council President Ann Forrest last Sunday), the floral design is permanently painted on the road surface just north of Victory Heights Park.
And here is what it looks like from the air:
Ann Forrest tell us: Victory Heights’ neighbors got involved with TeenFeed at the beginning of the pandemic (September 2020) and has been a consistent volunteer group ever since. Each month (usually on the 2nd Monday) neighbors make different components of a simple meal (teriyaki chicken, rice, seasonal vegetable, and dessert) and bring it to the corner of 20th Ave and NE 105th. Another volunteer drives the food down to the University District where volunteers serve it to homeless teens.
Teen Feed provides warm meals, basic needs items, and supportive connections to over 9,000+ youth annually in Seattle’s University District and in Auburn. We could really use more volunteers! It’s super easy to get involved. Learn more and sign up here… TeenFeed SignUp
To our current TeenFeed volunteers, THANK YOU for your efforts over the past two years! You’re the Best!
GET INVOLVED: VICTORY HEIGHTS COMMUNITY COUNCIL
The next meeting of the Victory Heights Community Council will be on Monday, September 19th at 7 PM on Zoom. The food trucks, utility box art, ice cream social, and street art are all because of the community council. It’s all done by volunteers who are your neighbors. Email us to get on the newsletter list and get the Zoom link each month, and find out what’s happening next.
