Every year at the beginning of fall and throughout the holidays the Historic Waterfront organizes our Community Care Teams to gather greatly needed items to be distributed to local seniors, disabled adults and children in need. This year it’s especially important to up our offerings and we hope you can help, or share with someone who can.

Needed items listed below

Monetary contributions ARE tax deductible

ALL items purchased through your contribution, or purchased by you directly go to Island County Human Services. Their staff will make sure those most in need receive what Community Care teams have generated.

Our first 2020 delivery to Health and Human Services was received with great appreciation! 

Can you help us make the next delivery? YOU chose how to help. Give a monetary donation online right now and we’ll purchase assorted items from the list below, OR you can buy items from the list and bring them to the office. 

You can safely donate through paypal.

If you rather not donate online, mail a check to Coupeville Historic Waterfront, P.O. Box 121, Coupeville, WA 98239. Please put “Community Care” on the check’s memo. 

For drop off’s of items you’ve purchased from the list below, the CHWA office is located on Coveland behind and below Balanced Body Works – 6 Coveland – map. Dropped off items are ONLY collected October through December 19th. Monetary donations are taken year round.
