We would like to extend a special thank you to our wonderful communities, for giving so generously and to all the wonderful volunteers, post office employees and their family members who joined together Saturday to help their community. You made this food drive very successful. The North Whidbey Help House, Gifts from the Heart and The Good Cheer Food Banks received the extra resources to continue to provide for those in need.
