Every year the Historic Waterfront Association organizes our Island County Community Care Team to gather everyday items for distribution to local seniors, disabled adults and children throughout the year. All items go directly to Island County Human Services so our county case managers and social workers can distribute to those in critical need.

From November through Dec. 19th bring your donated items to the CHWA office located at 6 Coveland. The office entry is located down the steps (to the right) of Balance Body Works.


IF the office is closed put your donations in the box outside the office door. If you’re donating something other than supplies (cash or gift cards) please email or call our Executive Director Vickie Chambers to arrange for a drop off or pick up. 360-222-3696
