Harbor Life Ring program seeks donations in response to COVID-19
The Town of Friday Harbor organizes the Harbor Life Ring program as a means of providing funds to lower income individuals and families who are town water, sewer and refuse customers. The town collects these monies as part of customer’s utility payments and, with the Family Resource Center providing screening services, allocates the monies from the fund to pay a utility bill for those in need. This service may be requested once every calendar year.
This spring, with the anticipated budget disruptions to hit hundreds of households, the town is asking its utility customers to again step forward and help their neighbors with a Harbor Life Ring donation. Because the needs will be so wide, the Town will split all donations received between the utility program and the Friday Harbor Food Bank.
The Town Council has authorized a matching fund up to the first $5,000 contributed. The owners of Kings Market have generously provided a second match for $5,000 which will make every $1 donation a $3 gift.
“We understand that everyone has been impacted by the COVID-19 virus, but if you are in a position to help those in need in the community it would be greatly appreciated” said Mayor Farhad Ghatan. “We are especially thankful for the very generous donation from Kings Market which will really stretch each contribution.”
Town utility customers can expect a letter in their end of March billing statement. Questions about the program can be directed to the Friday Harbor Administrator, Duncan Wilson, at (360) 378-2810.
