Dirt Yard fundraiser continues

The Dirt Yard, which is closing its operations at its site on Cemetery Road, is donating all of its proceeds from its sales of mulch, woodchips and topsoil to the Vashon High School football team.

Brad Middling, owner of the Dirt Yard, said the fundraiser will continue until the operation moves from the site — possibly until the end of this month.

Jennifer Huerta, treasurer for the Bounty Club, a parents’ group that supports VHS football, said she was impressed by Middling’s generosity. The materials, she added, are being sold at below the usual costs.

“It’s a win-win for everybody — the customers, too, because the can get something at a very good price,” she said.
