We also need financial contributions and $25 grocery store gift cards. Your financial donations help us purchase fresh produce, meat, and dairy items, and continue to run our vital programs. Grocery store gift cards allow us to provide self-selection options to shoppers when product availability limits our selection. If you'd prefer to write a check to avoid the 3% online processing fee, we welcome checks mailed to 179 1st Avenue SE, Issaquah, WA 98027. Thank you!
To help keep everyone safe this holiday season, we've transitioned this program to gift cards only this year. We have a BIG goal of providing for 2,000 children and we need your help! Please help by donating gift cards in $25 increments so that parents can shop online from the safety of their home for that perfect gift for their child. Give online now or learn more about how to help by November 23rd!
