This Year, Bayview Farm and Garden will be donating a percentage of their cut Christmas tree sales to Ryan’s House For Youth, a local charity to help homeless and at-risk youth.

Bayview Farm and Garden has been providing top quality cut and living trees to Whidbey residents for nearly 20 years. The Ryan’s House For Youth organization has 5 acres of donated land and is in the process of building a shelter on that land. Ryan’s House For Youth is supported by a local board with many years of experience in counseling, mediation, human services and education. The staff is educated in youth and family studies and has over 20 years of experience with youth in this age group. Bayview Farm and Garden has a great selection of cut Noble, Fraser, Douglas and Grand firs. Look for the $5 off coupon in today’s South Whidbey Record and Whidbey News-Times.

A couple has donated half of the proceeds from a handcrafted Victorian dollhouse auction to a proposed homeless youth home on South Whidbey.

Lori Cavender, executive director of Ryan’s House for Youth, recently announced the donation. Half of the proceeds from the auctioned dollhouse on display at Casey’s Crafts at Bayview Center will be donated to the nonprofit. Bidding started Nov. 20 and closes at 6 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 20. The starting bid was $300.
