Get involved

Thanks to the generous efforts of a group of dedicated volunteers our Coupeville community will soon have a Boys and Girls Club. Any of you who grew up in a community with a Boys and Girls Club can attest to the positive support to the youth involved.

Thanks to the leadership group, we have been able to found a Boys and Girls Club under the auspices of the Boys and Girls Club of Snohomish County. Negotiations have been made to rent the Central Whidbey Fire Department building next to their new building on Main Street.

In our community, as in any community our young people need a safe place where they can find companionship and recreation. As you know, none of this comes for free. We have already raised some seed and grant money thanks to the generosity of local organizations.

With your support, we will be able to provide this tremendous opportunity to our young people. Your donations and support for this worthwhile project can be made to: Boys and Girls Club of Snohomish County (marked for the Boys and Girls Club of Coupeville), PO Box 985, Coupeville, WA, 98239.
