Come and support Helping Hand of South Whidbey while listening to musical contributions from Trio Nouveau and Kaj Lund Olsen. Enjoy a night of learning and laughter as we lend a hand to those who are working so hard to support those in need.

The benefit concert takes place at 7 p.m. on Jan. 10 in the Langley United Methodist Fellowship Hall.

Helping Hand of South Whidbey provides immediate financial assistance when basic services of life and well-being are in danger of being discontinued. They also make referrals to local, county or state agencies for longer-term assistance.
