This lovely, utterly local non-profit cares for families at the hardest moments. They provide financial relief after tragic events to families in Whatcom County. Anyone can donate, but only $2 a month. The more of us that donate, the more powerful the help we can share in providing.

We found two keys on a ring near Carl Lobe Park Wednesday evening. Please call to identify and claim. Dave and Rosalie Carlson, 360 671-2115

I can do occasional necessary errands for those who need to stay home due to corona. I have a vehicle. Texting is best (360)540-4847 . Thanks, Arielle Stein

For free. A box of beveled  glass pieces/all clear glass. Average size- 3 to 6 inches. I have them from a past life when I did stained glass. Would love to see them put to a good use. ~ .Jana Williams on Walnut.  Text if interested to 360-920-5518.

My husband and I had a heartwarming experience today at the Community CoOp when we picked up our curbside order. The fact that they are doing curbside is important since we don’t go into any store. We are seniors with underlying conditions. Yay for that, but also we left a tip and the employee said that would go to the Food Bank! To give a tip to the food bank when you’re not making all that much yourself is truly heartwarming.  ~ Carla Martin

I received a very sad email from a woman searching for Section-8 eligible housing to rent. Her current, long-term rental home has been sold. She has multiple, severe chemical sensitivities and very little money. She is medically fragile as well. If anyone has a lead on a rental for her, please contact Roberta Fargo at and she can send you details on her needs. Thank you! ~ Fl!p

My girlfriend and I are seeking housing for the 2020-2021 school year starting August (with some flexibility). We’d love to rent out your private ADU, mother-in-law, basement, or AirBnb to provide some guaranteed rental income in this uncertain time. We are fastidiously neat and quiet. We have one non-destructive dog. Looking for a sweet spot to make our nest while positively contributing to your income! References available. Please call or text, we would love to hear from you. ~ Margot Lewis, (360) 927-4879, Lynn Street

CASCADIA International Women’s Film Festival usually takes place at the Pickford Film Center in April but had to cancel its fourth annual ‘live’ festival of films directed by women.  Instead, CASCADIA is presenting its first-ever Online Festival, May 14-17 so that anyone, anywhere can see this year’s official selections. This means that more people from all over the world will see the stories women tell.

By purchasing a festival pass you help CASCADIA honor its commitment to its 2020 directors and its audiences and send the message to women filmmakers all over the world that you believe, like CASCADIA,  that women’s stories need to be seen and heard. The films are bold, powerful and inspiring.

Passes for CASCADIA International Women’s Film Festival’s first Online Festival May 14-17 are on sale now through the website!  For $19.95, you receive an all access pass to 30 films during the festival’s four days!
