  • Vacation opportunities! Visit Palm Desert, Vashon Island, or Leavenworth and take a break from it all! Visit right away or wait a year -- the choice is yours.

  • Love music? Take a look at our unique music experiences! We have lots of talent in NE Seattle - from a renowned opera singer to a group of self-taught ukelele players, these are truly gifts you won't find anywhere else!

  • Throw an unforgettable online party! It's getting hard to keep in contact with friends and loved ones the longer we stay in quarantine- we get it.

    Spice things up with one of our parties! Try a tea party (complete with a tea sampler from Queen Mary Tea Shoppe) or an origami party (paper supplied by P.A.P.E.R as part of the package) or one of our other unique online gathering sets for a fun way to stay connected with your favorite people.

  • Food! Sake and Sushi delivered to your very door + a special Sushi dishes set! Or, get dessert delivered 1x a week from our very-own secret dessert-making master! Find these and more local dining and food delivery options under the food tab!

Redecorate your home with beautiful pieces from local artists!


Keeping Our Community Healthy & Engaged

NEST is the network that allows our community to volunteer, join in, celebrate, and support older adults.

We help our community feel safe and cared for, and stay healthy - especially during the COVID pandemic and beyond.

That begins by helping older adults in 13 neighborhoods of north east Seattle who want access to our volunteer services and classes to afford them.


Raising Funds for a Crucial Cause

NEST's auction will raise money for:

  • Scholarships for older adults to join our programs

  • Safety equipment and supplies that will help to keep our volunteers and members safe

  • Funds to support new programming


Bid on local excursions like guided kayaking and master bird watch walks,
and even outdoor movies at your home!



Please join us in thanking our auction donors to date. We hope that you will also support our many business donors with your business!  It takes a village and we appreciate you.   Though bidding is over, you can still donate - NEST relies on community philanthropy to offer our programs to the community.
