Community partners, donors, staff and volunteers will gather at Magnuson Community Center at 7110 62nd Avenue NE, Seattle, WA on Wednesday, November 29th at 11:00 a.m. to celebrate the groundbreaking of Mercy Magnuson Place, an expansion effort and partnership to serve the communities’ low income children and families.

According to Duffell, “Denise Louie Education Center is elated to work in partnership with Mercy Housing to bring top quality, multicultural early learning to needy families in Northeast Seattle—especially in connection with beautifully designed housing in Sand Point’s park-like setting. We can’t imagine a better opportunity for children and families.”
