The Virtual Magic Change Jar Rides Again

As the pandemic continues to impact our community, our state, our nation, and the world, we’ve joined forces with several local organizations and people to give back — but we need your help too. We are opening another window for the Virtual Magic Change Jar.
As the patrons of The Clyde know, there is a mason jar on the candy counter labeled “The Magic Change Jar.” Every two months a South Whidbey nonprofit receives the change that patrons put in that jar. What makes it Magic is that local partners match that change (up to a certain dollar amount) and one dollar donated magically becomes more.
In order to continue that support while The Clyde is closed, the five partners have decided to establish a “virtual” MCJ. The Assembly of God Church, Kevin Lungren at Edward Jones Investments, Mary Jane Lundgren at Saratoga Dental, Richard Epstein Construction, and The Clyde Theatre will match, up to $250 each, every dollar that the citizens of South Whidbey donate. The Clyde Theatre has already passed along a check to Good Cheer with the belief that we’ll absolutely have money to match.
Please send checks made out to Good Cheer to Magic Change Jar, POB 199 Langley WA, 98260. If you are young and think that checks are a quaint relic of the past, you may mail small amounts of cash to that address or put the cash in an envelope and slide it into the box office at The Clyde.
If any individuals or businesses want to “partner up” in this time of need, please contact Blake at 360-969-9509. We’ll be sure that you get recognized in our next update.
