Shop Local: Supporting Those Who Give Back
At Penrith, we understand the importance of community. That’s why we’re excited that our employees choose to support local small businesses and restaurants who are dedicated to giving back.

Check out a list of our favorite local eateries who are supporting essential workers during this COVID-19 pandemic:

  1. Herbfarm

Herbfarm, located in Woodinville, WA, one of the great neighborhoods we serve, continues to provide free meals for healthcare workers. Learn how you can contribute to their efforts here.


  1. Nue

Found on @nueseattle Instagram: “Fourty meals (plus energy drinks donated by @ashocenergy ) to our Country Doctor Community Health Center today! Community health centers are often the first stop for low-income Washingtonians with COVID-19 symptoms, and thus they act as frontline for this pandemic and help patients from overcrowding hospitals. Thanks Country Doctors team!!”


Through its non-profit arm “Nue Plant,” Nue Seattle makes routine food donations to “frontline healthcare workers in the Seattle area.” At a minimum of 20 donations per visit, these efforts help to support those who are working tirelessly with victims of COVID-19. You can learn more about their efforts here.


  1. Café Con Todo

Found on @cafecontodo Instagram: “Brewing 420 cups of coffee and tea for our health heroes. Busy day, busy week. We're feeling grateful to be able to help others at a time like this.

🧡💙💚💛💜❤ @anchorheadcoffee @steepologie”

With Café Con Todo, saying “thank you” to healthcare professionals is made easier. You can purchase a coffee or baked good and have it sent directly to a Seattle healthcare worker and their staff. You can send a cup here.


It’s important to remember that we’re all in this together. As we all work through this pandemic, our lending team finds comfort in being able to support the community, give back, and take care of those who are so committed to taking care of us.
