Whidbey Island community comes through for food

The Interfaith Coalition of Whidbey Island would like to thank the community of North Whidbey for their generous donation of food and money during our Feed the Need food drive held Saturday, Jan. 21. With the support of our community, the ICOWI collected 6,000 pounds of canned food and $1,000.15 for the Help House of North Whidbey.

Special thanks goes out to all the volunteers who collected food items at our local grocery stores from shoppers and delivered them to our collection van. It is a blessing to know we live in a community concerned with helping others in this time of economic need. Peace and blessings to all.

Hap Fakkema, president
Interfaith Coalition of Whidbey Island
