Want to help homebound Kirkland residents who need food?
Sign up to be a Volunteer Food Driver with Sound Generations.
Contact Sound Generations at (206) 748-7588 or email email@example.com to apply. If you become a volunteer driver, Sound Generations will connect you with a homebound individual or family in need of food. You will be asked to pick up a prepared food box from Hopelink to deliver. Please follow all social distancing requirements and recommendations when providing this community service.
The City of Kirkland has mailed an informational postcard to each residential address in Kirkland to connect residents who are homebound with needed services. The postcard provides three phone numbers of important information and resources that may be helpful for residents who are homebound:

- 1-866-427-4747 – 24-Hour Crisis Line
- 1-425-207-4777 – Sound Generations Call Center for people unable to get food
Knowing the Facts:
- Up-to-date recommendations and information from Public Health - Seattle & King County
- Please call the Washington State Novel Coronavirus Call Center at 800-525-0127 for general questions about COVID-19 in Washington.
- In this time of uncertainty, it is important that we remember our community’s values of being safe, inclusive, and welcoming. We are all in this together, and together we'll get through this. It is critical to remember that misinformation about COVID-19 can create fear and hostility that hurts people and makes it harder to keep everyone healthy. No race, nationality, or ethnicity is more likely to have COVID-19. Speak up if you hear, see, or read harassment, and avoid spreading misinformation. Public Health - Seattle & King County has developed various resources for responding to stigma.
