Boys and Girls Club (Heidi Roberts, Carmen McFadyen): Boys & Girls Clubs programs are rooted in the Youth Development Strategies, which assure that all members have positive experiences that build self-esteem. Our Youth Development Strategy is a strength-based approach. We nurture each member’s individual strengths. In doing so, we nurture the positive identity of each of our members, providing opportunities for them to succeed in everything they do, inside and outside of the Club.

Gifts from the Heart Foodbank (Carol Harrison): Gifts from the Heart Food Bank opened on Valentine's Day, 2002. The food bank was started by a small group of people who felt there was a need for a food bank serving Central Whidbey Island. We originally started operating from a small space provided to us at Greenbank Farm. After three years of operation, we knew there was a need and, also, that our community and businesses would continuously support a food bank. In November of 2005, we moved into the old fire hall at 203 North Main, our current location. We store and prepare the food here and also distribute to our Coupeville clients.

The Shifty Sailors (Wylie Vracin): We all hail from Whidbey Island – famed and framed in Puget Sound, just northwest of Seattle, Washington, USA, and southwest of Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. Twenty-eight years ago, a music teacher on an island knew if you put a story to music, the message would be retained. Preserving maritime history, heritage, events, and lessons of Puget Sound, our country, and the world would be why this group was “launched” – to do just that – singing the rich songs of old and new. But it would take hold not only in our concerts, but also in the many awareness–building and fund-raising performances we have done for Maritime Museums, music programs, and charitable organizations in Maine, Massachusetts, Connecticut, Rhode Island, California, Oregon, Hawaii, British Columbia, and Washington State. We also found our way to stages in Europe – the Baltic Sea Countries, France, Prague, the British Isles, and Ireland.
