This was a community effort. Volunteers showed up in force to knock on doors and make calls. People from all around Whatcom County sent in checks of all sizes. Citizens decided to spend their time and hard-earned money to invest in a positive future through an important local election.

We had 245 volunteers.
They put in a total of 480 shifts.
Together we knocked on 30-thousand doors.
And made 70-thousand calls to voters.

The Coordinated Campaign had 192 individual donations.
