A big thank you | Letter

It’s that time of year again – United Way of San Juan County has placed cans around town for your spare change to help friends and neighbors in need. On Lopez, your generosity goes to people young and old – the Hamlet House and Hamlet Cottages, Community Radio KLOI, Conservation Corps Youth Crew, Family Resource Center, Children’s Center, the Mentor Program, Lopez Fresh, and Lopez Preschool PIP.

Last year, Lopez residents contributed the largest amount of money in these cans of all the San Juan Islands! You’ll find our cans at Lopez Village Market, Sunset, the Lopez Bookshop, the IMC, and the south end grocery store.

Another event – United Way’s “Day of Caring” – is Saturday, September 20. Community volunteers will be gardening, weeding, mulching and who knows what else from 9 AM to noon at the Fire Station, the Hamlet Cottages, and the Children’s Center. Refreshments provided. We’d love you to join us! For questions, contact Liz at 468-4441.

Thanks for your generosity.
