Historic Waterfront Community Care Team

Every year at the beginning of the winter season holidays the Historic Waterfront Association organizes our Island County Community Care Team to donate greatly needed everyday items to be distributed to our local seniors, disabled adults and children throughout the year. 

All items donated go directly to Island County Human Services so our county case managers and social will distribute to those in critical need.

Bring your donations to the CHWA office located on Coveland, down the steps to the right of Balance Body Works at 6 Coveland, Coupeville, November through Dec. 19th every year.


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 our Executive Director Vickie Chambers to arrange for a drop off or pick up.
