How to Help


One of the easiest and most effective ways to support the islands during this crisis is by making a donation to one of the organizations who are directly supporting island non-profits providing direct service to the community:

Lopez Island Recovers (this is a link to a number of organizations that could use support)

Donate to the Orcas Island Community Response Fund

Donate to the San Juan Island Community Response Fund A County-wide effort to support local businesses through gift card purchases, courtesy of EDC.


In addition there are efforts underway to identify and organize volunteers. Remember that health and safety always needs to be top priority, and that may limit some opportunities at this stage of the response.
