We would like to take this opportunity to express our sincere appreciation for an extremely successful Christmas In July Food and Fund Drive.
Help House received 21,919 food items and $16,111.95 in cash donations for this event, exceeding our goal of 10,000 food items and $10,000 cash.
A special thank you to Robert Young and his group from Tradewind Insurance and Camden Schutte and his group from Coldwell-Banker Koetje Real Estate for their fifth consecutive drive for Help House. Their contributions alone were 7,000 food items and a check for $1,229.
We would also like to give a shout out to the Oak Harbor Lions and our volunteers Jana and Leroy for their help during our weekend food drive.
And to everyone who dropped off donations, took items to their church or sent us a check, we couldn’t do it without you.
Unlike the holiday season, both food and monetary donations slow down during the summer months so Christmas in July was established to help keep our supplies stocked.
This year’s event definitely did just that.
We would not be celebrating over 42 years of service to those in need if not for the generosity of this wonderful community.
From the board of directors, staff, volunteers and clientele, thank you for making our little corner of the world a better place.
Jean T. Wieman, executive director
North Whidbey Help House
