FINANCIAL DONATIONS AND GIFT CARDS:

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!


ONE-TIME DONATION DROP-OFFS:
