SC Give is the Stanwood-Camano community's local Giving Tuesday event. It is a 24-hour online giving event hosted by the Stanwood-Camano Area Foundation to celebrate and support giving and local philanthropy. Starting at 12:00 a.m. on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving, area residents unite for 24 straight hours of giving and generosity to a variety of projects that provide basic needs and enhance the quality of life in our community.
Trauma is a mentally, physically, spiritually, or emotionally disturbing or distressing experience that can dramatically effect a person's life. Unfortunately, trauma can be experienced by anyone in our community. Hope Unlimited's Northwest Incident Support provides immediate care and support to the families and first responders who experience a critical or traumatic incident.
This year, our project is to help our community by outfitting a response apparatus that will practically help first responders and community members during extended scenes (i.e. fires, search and rescues, accidents, etc.).
Our goal is to equip the apparatus with new lighting, a generator, popup tents, tables, chairs, coolers, and coffee pots. All of this allows us to provide rehabilitation for first responders at extended scenes, as well as provide shelter and comfort for community members.
In 2020, we responded to 363 calls, several requiring a fully-equipped response vehicle.
