With all activities, please make sure you’re following the State’s rules for staying at home. While you can take walks or go to the grocery store, always maintain at least 6′ between you and others.

  • Call Cascade Regional Blood Center and schedule to donate blood.
  • Walk or bike the Sumner Link Trail.
  • Get a cup o’ joe & scone to go at your favorite coffee shop.
  • Order a new book from A Good Book. They do online orders and shipping!
  • Phone a friend you haven’t talked to in a really long time.
  • Catch up on the projects with Sumner Connects and share some feedback.
  • Learn a new language online. (Travel will come back!)
  • Check out services Pierce County Library offers online. Bet there’s more than you ever realized!
  • Support a local non-profit with an online gift. Many rely on this time of year for their annual fundraisers, so they will be hit hardest when they need resources & funding the most. Extra bonus? Giving to a charity is proven to lift your spirits!
  • Walk around Sumner and wave to people you pass from a distance.
  • Order a meal to go from your favorite restaurant or try something new!
  • Respond to the 2020 Census invitation you likely just received in the mail!
  • Call the Sumner Food Bank and ask how you can help. This is hitting everyone hard.
  • Start working in the yard.
  • Buy a ticket online for a future arts performance. Arts groups are currently shut down, so plan to give them a try later this year. Opera? Ballet? Musical? Why not?
  • Surf Travel Tacoma’s website and plan one new adventure at a museum and/or attraction you’ll try when this is all over.
  • Have the kids design movie tickets and do a true night “in” at the movies with popcorn, candy and everything.

Anyone else need a nap? We tried to highlight a lot of our local businesses but couldn’t include them all. Keep exploring Sumner Downtown Promotion Association and the Puyallup-Sumner Chamber of Commerce for more links and resources.
