St. Augustine’s in-the-Woods Episcopal Church recently presented five non-profit organizations with the proceeds from this year’s Trash & Treasure Sale.

The groups were Time Together, the Whidbey Animals’ Improvement Foundation, the Mobile Turkey Unit, Mother Mentors and the Soup’s On! soup kitchen.

Each received $1,000.

The 55th annual trash and treasure sale was held April 29 at the church on Honeymoon Bay Road in Freeland. Since 1962, the event has raised approximately $250,000 for Whidbey charities.
