Hearts & Hammers workday slated for this weekend

Saturday is the big day.

An army of Hearts & Hammers volunteers will work side-by-side from the morning into late afternoon to bring much needed repairs to select homes on South Whidbey. The repairs will focus on residences owned by those who may be physically or financially unable to do the work alone, according to a press release.

During the 23rd year of the massive volunteer effort, over 30 homeowners will receive assistance at no cost. People will volunteer hours of labor and materials for the cause. The work ranges from building roofs, ramps for the disabled, fixing doors and windows, clean-up and meal preparation. All skill levels are welcomed.

Volunteers will convene at 7:45 a.m. at the South Whidbey High School Commons for team organization, continental breakfast and a group photo. Organizers will split up the army of volunteers into groups under the guidance of team captains.

Following hours of helping fellow South Whidbey residents, a celebration dinner for volunteers, homeowners and family members of both groups is slated for 6 p.m. at the high school.
