In addition to regular community cleanups throughout our neighborhoods, Ike’s proudly supports Seattle charities such as…
Country Doctor Community Health Clinics Uncle Ike’s is dedicated to helping solve the ever growing problem of homelessness in the greater Seattle area. In an effort to curb this issue we are advising the patrons of our Capitol Hill location to give their change to our donation boxes, which are located inside the store, as an alternative to donating to individuals soliciting change outside our store. While donating individually to a needy person may provide you with a sense of moral and ethical fulfillment, this kind of charity can be socially counterproductive. Often times these donations go towards enabling drug addictions rather than providing addiction recovery or food, clothing, and shelter. All donations at Uncle Ike’s store will be matched 100%, with a $10,000 monthly limit, and given directly to the Country Doctor Community Health Center. These donations will help fund the Country Doctor Community Clinic, Carolyn Downs Family Medical Center, and the After-Hours Clinic. The Country Doctor has been a vital part of the Capitol Hill community since 1971 and strives to provide high quality primary health care to the community regardless of their ability to pay.
