Hearts and Hammers needs volunteers for an upcoming workday on May 7 to celebrate 23 years of neighbors helping neighbors.

The annual workday, which takes place on the first Saturday in May, will bring needed repairs to homeonwers who physically or financially are unable to do the work alone, according to a press release. Over 30 homeowners will be helped at no cost, thanks to volunteers, donations and in-kind donations of material from local lumber yards and supply retailers.

The work will range from repairing roofs, building wheelchair ramps, replacing doors and windows to cleanup, floor repairs, trash removal, and meal preparation/service. All skill levels are welcome to join.

Volunteers will gather rain or shine on Saturday morning, May 7 at South Whidbey High School for a breakfast snack and directions to work sites.

Donations are still needed to accomplish the work this year. Donors and volunteers can go online at www.heartsandhammers.com to sign up and/or donate. Alternatively, signup sheets are also available at: Ace Hardware, Sebo’s, Hanson’s, Frontier Lumber, Trinity Lutheran Church, and Island Athletic Club. Forms and donations can be mailed to PO Box 694, Langley, WA. 98260.
