The Filipino Community of Seattle is partnering with Catholic Community Services in the creation of FCS Village — a $17 million project.
“This is a dream come true for our community as we can now provide housing for our needy elderly who have struggled for years raising their families and making sacrifices so that we can make a better life here in America,” said FCS president Alma Kern.
The day after signing the memorandum of agreement, FCS hosted its 78th Anniversary Gala and fundraising event on Nov 2.
The more than 350 guests at the gala included elected officials, community leaders and members, nonprofit agencies, and veterans.
This year’s FCS Lifetime Bayanihan awardees are Former Rep. Velma Veloria, Fanny Sumaong, and Gloria Adams. (end)
