To the editor:
It was a great privilege to attend a recent South Whidbey Kiwanis luncheon. The gathering was an opportunity for the Kiwanians to give their hard-earned dollars to a number of local nonprofit organizations. Friends of Friends Medical Support Fund was one of the grateful recipients.
Their gift speaks to the very heart of our community; exemplifying generosity, supporting local organizations and assisting our neighbors in need. Our appreciation cannot be overstated.
The Kiwanis donation to Friends of Friends will pay for health care, prescriptions, diagnostic testing and other medically related expenses. This year we have helped over 220 South Whidbey residents with costs amounting to $65,000.
As you see, the need is great and their generosity has helped us meet the demand.
Thank you, Kiwanis, for supporting Friends of Friends and strengthening our community. We are extremely grateful.
Suzanne Schlicke, board president
