The Heroes Behind the Mask

Join us in celebrating some of Seattle’s frontline healthcare workers! We’re honoring them by sharing their portraits, as well as some fun facts about their lives which they’ve placed on pause while they fight the pandemic. You can participate by offering some kind words in the comments below. We’ll make sure they have a chance to read them, as your words may bring them much needed comfort and a smile after a hard day’s work.

Since the COVID-19 pandemic hit Seattle back in March, the incredible staff of the Seattle Indian Health Board and Chief Seattle Club have been providing life-saving services to our most vulnerable citizens. Their service is emblematic of the selfless work being done in clinics and hospitals around the world.  While it’s impossible for our small business to pitch in everywhere, we are proud to know that our donation of over 10,000 pieces of PPE (Personal Protection Equipment) has helped keep these local heroes a little safer.
