One day a year to make a diffrence
Our mission is to build relationships through work projects. You, the volunteer are the key to the whole program.
Nothing happens for free. We need donations from individuals and businesses to purchase building materials and supplies and to provide our volunteer crews with the supplies they need.
Refer a Homeowner
Homeowners who need repairs done to their homes which they cannot afford or cannot physically complete are our clients.
Be a Captain

My wife and I volunteered for our first Hearts and Hammers workday in 2018. We were assigned to a team of 15 new friends. We started then day as South Whidbey High School for orientation and coffee and then moved to our worksite. We cleaned the yard, build stairs to the back door, replaced rotten subfloor, hauled 5 truckloads of junk and debris to the dump. After 8 hours of work we met back at the high school for a celebratory dinner.
My wife Christy and I still get together for dinner with friends we made that day.
I jumped at the chance to help start a new Hearts and Hammers on North Whidbey. We get to make new friends and build relationships while doing work to help our neighbors in need.
