We can make a difference! South Whidbey Girl Scouts, a United Way organization, held a car wash/bake sale Sunday, Sept. 16 at Les Schwab to raise donations for the National Relief Fund, via Red Cross. Families baked goodies to sell. Troops, parents, and friends joined in to wash cars. Many people came by all day long, some only to donate to the cause. Congressman Rick Larson saw the road signs and (within hours of landing from Washington, D.C.) stopped, washed a few cars and spoke to people about our recent national tragedy. One man put $200 in the coffee can for his car wash, not to mention all the other countless donors.
This five-hour event raised $3,263! Thank you so much to all the caring, generous people who helped and contributed. What awesome examples of community service and spirit you all showed our children! God bless America and our little piece of it here on South Whidbey Island. People like you help make our country great.
