Letter: Contributions to Hearts Hammers quite generous


North Whidbey Hearts & Hammers is a new nonprofit that is dedicated to helping our community by providing home improvement assistance to homeowners with physical or financial needs.

Volunteers go out in teams on the second Saturday in May to repair, paint, mow and pull weeds.

We held our first annual Community Dinner fundraiser on Jan. 18 and would like to thank the following local businesses and residents for their generous contributions to our very successful evening:

United Methodist Church, Swinomish Casino & Lodge, Jonas Rosenberg—Summit Funding, Chris Cozine, Petco, Candlewood Suites, Lotus Tea Bar & Studio, Carol and Bob Wall, Orlando’s, Fraser’s, Rustica, BBQ Joint, Terrace Wine Bar & Bistro, Home Depot, Greenhouse Florist, Whidbey Playhouse, Whidbey Coffee, Chris’s Bakery, Frida’s — A Beautiful Mess, Whidbey Customs Landscaping, Melissa Fritch—Color Street, Gary Wray, and Reid and Christy Schwartz.

For anyone who would like to donate or volunteer to help, North Whidbey Hearts & Hammers can be reached at nwheartsandhammers@gmail.com or nwheartsandhammers.org.
