Our Fall 2017 Charity of the Quarter!

October 5, 2017

We asked you, our clients, to nominate our next Charity of the Quarter – and boy, did you come through!

We received nearly 20 different nominations for local charities, and we wish we could choose them all! But the winner for Fall Quarter is:

Meals on Wheels!

Meals on Wheels is run by the Mullis Senior Center in partnership with San Juan County Senior Services, the Senior Services Council of San Juan County, and San Juan County Senior Centers. This wonderful program delivers hot and nutritious meals twice weekly to homebound seniors on San Juan, Orcas, and Lopez Islands. They deliver about 40 meals per week in Friday Harbor, at a cost of $7 per meal and a suggested donation of $5. Meals are delivered regardless of the recipient’s ability to pay, which means that they could always use donations!

So how can you help?

  • Refer a friend or family member to Safe Harbor! For every referral we receive, we will donate $10 to Meals on Wheels of San Juan County.
  • Drop your spare change in the donation box at our front desk. Every little bit helps!
  • Start your Amazon shopping at smile.amazon.com and choose “Whatcom Council on Aging” as your charity (they partially subsidize costs for the program).
