Uncle Ike’s is helping many in our local community to thrive by addressing issues paramount to the social, educational, and health concerns of the LGBTQ community. Our employees felt that it was important to look no further than down the street to our neighbor, Entre Hermanos in supporting their mission. We are so proud to be able to support Entre Hermanos to “promote the health and well-being of the Latino Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender, and questioning community in a culturally appropriate environment through disease prevention, education, support services, advocacy and community building.”
With an $8,000 donation from Ike’s, and an additional $2,000 from our vendors Leafwerx, Phat Panda, Gabriel, Artizen and Velvet Swing, Ike’s is able to support programs that affect hundreds of lives.
“We have loved or collaboration with Uncle Ike’s. They have been a true community leader and a supporter of the rights of everyone to live and thrive in Seattle,” says Miguel Angel Duncan, Fundraising Manager at Entre Hermanos. “This donation goes a long way to support new programs like our immigration program. We decided on the expansion because members of our community have been attacked by the current administration. We have been able to provide legal consultation once a month for those affected by the new immigration policies, and now we are looking to expand the program year round.”
