Whidbey General Hospital helps children in need

With rooms full of toys, Whidbey General Hospital is preparing for Tree of Hope. Hospital employees are helping 64 kids this year, a record for them, according to Trish Rose, public relations manager.

Tree of Hope is an annual fundraiser by Soroptimist International of Oak Harbor that asks the community to buy gifts for children in need at Christmas. Volunteers are welcome to help wrap and organize gifts this week prior to Dec. 17. To volunteer, stop by the Church of Christ in Oak Harbor and sign in. For information visit
