The Chrysalis Inn & Spa was proud to present a donation this month in the amount of $1,890 to Skookum Kids. Established in 2014, Skookum Kids is located in Fairhaven and cares for foster kids in Whatcom County. The Skookum word is of Chinook origin meaning “strong.” One of the non-profit’s initiatives has created a volunteer-staffed facility to care for children entering or transitioning into foster care. With the children in safe care during their first week of foster care, the organization buys critical time for caseworkers to find the right long-term placement. Volunteers for their programs are always needed.
The Chrysalis, a locally owned hotel, spa & restaurant on Fairhaven’s waterfront, recently announced that they will contribute one percent of revenue from the Spa to a Whatcom County non-profit each month. Skookum Kids was their February recipient. Compass Health will be the March recipient.
