The HUB in Langley to stay open during summer

A $6,000 donation will allow The HUB in Langley to keep its doors open to South Whidbey’s youth throughout the summer months.

Bruce Allen, president of The HUB’s board, said the donation will cover the after-school drop-in center’s operational costs, which are needed to remain afloat.

The large donation comes after months of fundraising.

The after-school program closed in May 2016 due to insufficient funds and went through a six-month hiatus before reopening on January 23.

Proper funding has been a continual struggle for the drop-in center; it’s closed twice in the past decade.
