How can you help? Volunteer for all or part of the day. 

With the generous support of donors and local businesses, our community mobilizes supplies and services for over 500 neighbors in need each year at Bellingham High School. To make this happen, over 400 community volunteers and service providers are needed to support this effort. Lydia Place is a partner in this effort, and we would love you to join!  To see a list of volunteer opportunities and times please click here.

How can you help? Come say “hi,” or volunteer for an hour at our table. Email Kyle at

Downtown sounds is a series of free, outdoor concerts for the entire family celebrated in the Arts District on the 1300 block of Bay Street. Each night features performances by popular bands, local food vendors, and a 21+ beverage garden supported by Boundary Bay Brewery. This summer will mark 13 years of this ever-growing event, firmly cementing its place as Whatcom County’s biggest urban outdoor music festival.
