Hearts and Hammers of South Whidbey Island builds community and serves volunteers by connecting neighbors-in-need with neighbors who can help keep them safe and healthy in their homes.
We are a local non-profit organization that brings together hundreds of volunteers annually to help repair and rehabilitate homes of those who are physically or financially unable to do the work alone. In the spirit of neighbors helping neighbors, homeowners receive labor and materials at no cost to them thanks to the contributions and support of the larger community, including individual volunteers, churches, service and community organizations and local businesses.
The annual Hearts and Hammers workday is on the first Saturday of May each year. The 2019 Workday will be on May 4th.
A typical volunteer effort would include repairs and renovations possible within the scope of a one day work party; projects such as carpentry, plumbing and electrical repairs, painting, weatherization, roof and gutter repair, yard cleanup, and trash removal, the installation of wheelchair ramps, railings and grab bars.
For the 2018 work day, approximately 300 volunteers worked on 34 homes. Thank you all for your good work and your enthusiasm! The day was a rousing success!!!
