Other assistance included emergency repairs to make a home liveable for a city employee and their disabled mother and emergency child care assistance following the death of a spouse.

More employees donating through payroll deduction is our ongoing goal. Donations through the City’s Employee Giving Program, Seattle Shares, ensure a steady flow of funds for employees in need. And thanks to our corporate sponsors, every dollar donated by an employee goes to an employee in need.
