Hearts & Hammers holds benefit dinner

Hearts & Hammers will kick off its 17th year of neighbors helping neighbors with its annual spaghetti dinner.

The benefit is from 5 to 7 p.m. Friday, Feb. 12 in Fellowship Hall at the Langley United Methodist Church. This traditional event helps raise funds and volunteers for this community-based group, which provides free repair and maintenance for homes of people who are unable to do the work alone.

This year’s dining will include spaghetti with a choice of regular or gluten-free noodles, meat or vegetarian sauce, garlic bread, a variety of salads, desserts and beverage, all for $5 for adults and $3 for children younger than 12.

This is a great opportunity to socialize with a large part of the community and learn more about this grassroots organization. Sign up for the Saturday, May 1 work day and purchase this year’s T-shirts and hats, while enjoying food, friends and fun.

Last year, more than 400 volunteers brought needed help to more than 45 homeowners in the South Whidbey community. Many possible homes have already been identified for this year’s work day, and fundraising is under way. If you are a homeowner needing help, sign up through the Web site at www.heartsandhammers.com starting Feb. 12, or call 221-6063.

Anyone interested in helping with the dinner may call Shellie Moore at 221-8898 or 206-391-1087.
