Hearts and Hammers of South Whidbey Island is 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.
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.

37 homes received help from over 415 volunteers
12.03 tons of trash and debris were removed from homes
41 truck loads of wood were cut, split and delivered.
Way to Go!!
