Dear CJHF supporters,
We are excited to tell you about a new AmazonSmile promotion that launches today. Amazon is tripling the donation amount to 1.5% when customers make their first eligible smile.amazon.com purchase from March 12 - 31. This is a great opportunity to increase Captain Joseph House Foundation AmazonSmile donations by reminding our supporters that shopping on AmazonSmile supports our Gold Star Veteran Families.
Simply go to smile.amazon.com today, March 12 thro...ugh March 31 and select Captain Joseph House Foundation as your charity to support. AmazonSmile is a website operated by Amazon with the same products, prices, and shopping features as Amazon. The difference is that when you shop on AmazonSmile, the AmazonSmile Foundation will typically donate 0.5% of the purchase price of eligible products to the charitable organization of your choice. Please make your purchases from March 12-31 to triple the donation amount to CJHF.
Thank you for your continued support!

Olympic Theatre Arts (OTA) invited Captain Joseph House (CJH) to partner with them for this production. In exchange for marketing exposure in their media and our presence at all 12 shows to share information about our project, CJH assists with jobs needed to present this show (ushers, concession, etc,) We still have need for volunteers! Contact Sam Coyle, Event Volunteer Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you for your continued support!
One could hear the sounds of drills, saws, hammering and shoveling of dirt throughout the neighborhood today. A crew (12) of men and women from our Coast Guard Station and our Wednesday-Thursday crew (10) worked on a number of projects on Captain Joseph House. We had volunteers working on the SW deck on the second floor, laying subfloor for the bathroom floor tiles, pulling up old flooring in the library before the Fir floors are replaced and filling in the water line trench on the north side of the House. And of course, time for pizza mid-way through the day! Hearty thanks to all of you for your muscle and enthusiasm!
From Tom Cox, long term Captain Joseph House volunteer and Veteran: "Bets I am so happy and excited by the news. You never gave up, you always had faith and your inspiration has paid off. Thank you so much. Deb and I so appreciate this moment...thanks...love you." Tom posted the following on his Facebook to share with friends and family:

Just in time to weather a windy and rainy day! The new roof has been completed over the Activity and Craft Room by Earth Tech Roofing. Next step is the outdoor deck that will be built over this roof...a southwest exposure facing Hurricane Ridge. Great place for families to gather around picnic tables, talk, read or recline in a lawn chair for a nap!
