About OneEastside

OneRedmond formed OneEastside to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic. Pivoting their 501c3 Foundation, OneRedmond created the OneEastside brand to actively connect King County chambers and cities to help them collectively maximize resources and align priorities.

East King County regional efforts have included the Eastside Recovery Hub portal and financial webinar series (now folded into OneEastside SPARK) which has become a robust nexus for information and resources that is used by cities and chambers across the state and beyond. As reopening began, OneRedmond was a leading partner and worked with over 20 chambers and cities to help deliver over 2 million masks and PPE to small businesses throughout King County.

Community Initiatives

As our economy recovers from COVID-19, our mission with OneEastside is to unify East King County in coordinated action to sustain and grow our economy. Affordable housing, transportation, education, and economic development are four immediate areas of concern. Only through a united voice speaking for local business, government, education, and the community can we persuade decision-makers to address these needs.
