Headlines

From Mayor Jennifer Gregerson: The Mukilteo Food Bank is doing an awesome job distributing food to our residents in need. They need our help! For less than $5, if everyone donated a box of cereal and a 1 lb. bag of rice, a family could be fed for a day (assuming other foods were also distributed). Learn how to donate food or cash: https://legacy.mukilteofoodbank.org/donations.htm

You can also drop off donated non-perishable food at either Mukilteo Fire Station. The Harbour Pointe station is located at 10400 47th Place West, and the Old Town station is located at 700 5th Street. Thank you for helping your neighbors!


From Council President Emery: Read City Council President Richard Emery’s Letter to the Mukilteo Beacon About COVID-19. “First, I want to express my gratitude, respect, and admiration for all of the people, businesses, medical workers, and first responders for the work they are doing in response to the COVID 19 epidemic,” said Council President Emery.  “We have to be patient. And have the stamina and will power to continue social distancing. We have to understand that any motion towards a return to normal will be gradual. We want economic recovery to be successful, allowing everyone to return to work and have the ability to support themselves and their families, without creating another round of infections and deaths. We can contact Senators Patty Murray and Maria Cantwell, and Representative Rick Larsen to continue to seek funding for testing and contact tracing. We can contact our State elected officials for the same reasons. Governor Jay Inslee

Senator Marko Liias


2020 Census: Be sure to complete the 2020 Census! 66.3% of Mukilteo has already completed it, great job Mukilteans! But, that means 1/3 of residents have not.


Providence Hospital Everett

From Providence Regional Medical Center Everett:  Even during the COVID-19 pandemic heart attacks, strokes, accidents, severe bleeding, and other life-threatening illnesses happen. Early treatment can significantly improve your outcome. Don’t let COVID-19 keep you from coming to the hospital in an emergency. Don’t delay. Call 911. We’re here to take care of you, all of you.

Their patient volumes are really down, so there is a sense that people are afraid to use the resources available, or afraid of the hospital itself. Call 911 if you need help.
