Back Pack Project

This year Bluebills plan to provide a backpack filled with the appropriate school supplies for all the elementary school children in the Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault program in Jefferson County (Dove House). We hope to not only provide backpacks for the children currently in the program but also provide a few to keep on hand to

give to the students who are forced into this situation over the next year.


Our goal is to provide 20 backpacks and supplies for use by Dove House. If we get more, there is always a need for them.


If you care to participate please purchase the appropriate age backpack (up to you to choose) and fill it with the supplies.  Put a note inside the backpack identifying the grade. 


If you want to participate but not do the shopping, make out a $25 check to Sharon Commander and send it to her at 30 Goldfinch Lane, Port Ludlow, WA 98365. She will buy the goods for you.

We build several ramps in July, here is one we did in Port Townsend.  Left Port Ludlow at 8:30 in the rain. Rained the whole time until we finished at 12:00. Then it stopped. Business as usual.
