Helping Hand salmon fundraiser set for March 8

Salmon, baked potato, coleslaw, cake and baseball are on the menu at a Friday fundraiser in Langley.

Helping Hand of South Whidbey is hosting a salmon benefit dinner from 5 to 7 p.m. Friday, March 8 at Langley United Methodist Church Fellowship Hall.

The dinner costs $15 for adults, $10 for children.

Entering a raffle for four terrace-level tickets to a Mariners game costs $2 each or six raffle tickets for $10.

Helping Hand is a Christian charity that provides financial assistance to South Whidbey residents when circumstances disrupt basic life services. Examples include losing a job and being unable to pay utility bills or facing a large car repair that makes paying the mortgage or rent difficult.

The majority of donated funds go toward assistance with housing payments with utilities running a close second.

Helping Hand is staffed by volunteers from about 10 South Whidbey churches, and is supported through donations by churches, community donors, service organizations, businesses, and occasional foundation grants.

Annually, an individual can receive a maximum of $400.

In addition to assistance with bills, Helping Hand takes hundreds of calls and acts as a referral agency for individuals who require help from care providers or social service agencies.

Helping Hand of South Whidbey has an office in Freeland at Trinity Lutheran Church, 18341 State Route 525. Tickets to the salmon dinner are available from 9 a.m. to noon weekdays at the office or can be purchased at the dinner.
