Local helps local.

During this uncertain time, it’s never been truer that we are in this together. That’s why we’ve pledged $30,000 to three local foundations, Chuckanut Health Foundation, United Way of Whatcom County, and Whatcom Community Foundation, all of which are working to help meet the basic needs of our most vulnerable community members.
