Amazon Turns A Seattle Office Building Into A Permanent Homeless Shelter

A permanent homeless shelter has been created by Amazon inside one of its headquarters buildings in downtown Seattle.

Amazon partnered with nonprofit organization Mary’s Place to open the Mary’s Place Family Center in The Regrade. The family shelter was built inside one of Amazon’s office buildings. The facility is kept separate from Amazon offices through priate entrances and acoustical isolation. The family shelter is an eight-floor, 63,000-square-foot facility.

The space has a large dining room, an industrial kitchen with commercial cooking equipment, office space for Amazon’s legal team to provide support to shelter residents, and recreation spaces for children and teens.

Plazas and other public spaces surrounding the building were built to accommodate employees and shelter families.

For those with medical conditions, Amazon will make on-site healthcare available. There are also community rooms available for meetings.

The shelter is housing 50 families in private rooms, but eventually will accommodate up to 100 families at the facility, with an anticipated 1,000 families per year being helped.

 “This new shelter, opening when it did, has been our saving grace,” said Mary’s Place executive director Marty Hartman in a statement. ” It was our neighbors at Amazon who recognized what we needed before we ever realized it, and this space ensures we don’t have to return families to homelessness during this unprecedented and trying time.”

Amazon founder Jeff Bezos posted pictures of the new space on his Instagram account.

Watch Jimmy Kimmel’s alternate version of Trump’s press conference video

Published

President Donald Trump’s press conference video received a new edit from Jimmy Kimmel.

Nobody in late night television cuts together a video for politicians like Jimmy Kimmel Live! does. President Donald Trump was the latest to get such treatment after his unorthodox decision to show a video during his press briefing.

Jimmy Kimmel described President Trump as a “lazy substitute teacher” in response to the dimmed lights and movie time. The comedian even went so far as to say that President Trump made history with the move.

The video was designed to highlight how members of the media and some Democrats downplayed COVID-19 while President Trump took decisive action. Critics suggested it was another attempt by the president to rewrite history.

For Jimmy Kimmel, it was the perfect format to once again mock the president. The video ultimately backfired on the White House and Kimmel’s version is one example of how:

It took some viewers a moment or two to realize that Kimmel’s version was not the one shown at President Trump’s press briefing. That isn’t a good sign for the White House. Then again, the actual video was called much worse, like a propaganda video, while others pointed out it was taken from an episode of Hannity.

For Kimmel and his writers, it was another chance to pull one of their favorite gags. Whether it is Senator Ted Cruz, Donald Trump, Jr., or someone else, the ABC late night show loves editing together parody campaign videos.

The video was just one part of a bizarre press conference that had everyone in late night lining up jokes. President Trump’s effort to use the media’s words against them appeared to be more proof that he can dish it out but can’t take it. And nobody dishes it out against the president quite like Jimmy Kimmel.

What did you think of Jimmy Kimmel’s version of the video? Let us know in the comment section below. Keep checking Last Night On for more from late night television.
