Letter: A volunteer’s volunteer; thank you for all your help

Editor,

Volunteers are the lifeblood of the many nonprofits and local organizations on Whidbey Island, bringing their skills, expertise, passion and commitment to serve our local community. But some go above and beyond to serve our friends and neighbors.

Thank you, to Mitch Incarnato, Island County’s Community Health Advisory Board Health Hero. Mitch has volunteered many years and many hours of service in Island County, including being a court-appointed special advocate involving volunteering his time for the best interest of children who have been removed from their homes due to abuse and neglect. Mitch also volunteers with his local food bank, hospice, Sound Water Stewards, Equestrian Crossings, Camp Erin Children’s Bereavement Camp, Langley Whale Center and Hearts and Hammers. Here’s to Mitch and to all who volunteer so selflessly.
