Send information for annual giving list

The Herald plans to publish its annual Ways to Give list Nov. 18. Ways to Give lets readers know about charitable groups that need help during the holiday season.

This is what we need: the name of the organization, what services are provided, hours, address, Web site, a phone number to be included in the listing, a phone number for confirmation and what items or services you need.

Submit information by Nov. 8 to Herald Community Extra Coordinator Gale Fiege, P.O. Box 930, Everett, WA 98206, or e-mail

The clinic is open to any patient but focuses on serving Medicare, Medicaid and uninsured patients. The clinic is open from 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Monday through Friday and two Saturdays a month from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
