Reader Jenna Pratt was recently at The Station coffee shop in Beacon Hill when she noticed something awesome — the café’s crowded bulletin board. The thing she loved most about it: the board’s hub of inclusivity.
“[There’s] the immense amount of opportunities to serve a community. The safety of the flyers that offer services to those in need,” she wrote on Instagram. “The colorful, vibrant images and language associated with issues and causes that matter most to those you share a highway with day in and day out. I’m incredibly thankful to feel such a strong affirmation for moving halfway across the country to Seattle.”
Cheers to that, Jenna. 💗
