Orcas here we come!

Skagit Habitat Truck


Believe it or not, at least on the calendar, Spring is just around the corner.  So too is one more visit to Orcas Island by the Skagit Habitat for Humanity Store truck.  The truck and volunteer drivers will be at Island Market parking lot again (thanks for your support) on Monday the 6th of March from 9:30 AM to noon.  Please look at the list of things they will be allowed to accept by going to the Store’s website before you load things into your vehicle.  Use “acceptible-and-not-acceptible-items-for-donation” to find this list.

“We really appreciate the growing cooperation that has developed between the Skagit Habitat Store and Orcas Recycling Services over the past three years,” said Pete Moe, Executive Director of ORS.  “While we’ve been without the Exchange, Skagit Habitat has provided islanders with an opportunity to donate good things that can be reused by others.  With a new Exchange just over the horizon, we’ll see less of the Habitat truck, but anticipate continuing our relationship with them as the situation offers.”

“If you have questions about the Skagit Habitat truck, the schedule, or what might be donated, please call Duff at 376-3032.  He is our local point of contact for Skagit Habitat for Humanity, as well as the volunteer coordinator for the Exchange.  You can also reach him at tpiduff@nullhotmail.com.”
