How to Donate During COVID-19

We are currently unable to accept private donations delivered to our door, so we appreciate your donations via our options below. If you're interested in volunteering, please see our volunteer page.

NO FOOD BANK DROP-OFFS OUTSIDE OF SPECIFIED DAYS AND TIMES BELOW
Thank you for honoring our partners at AtWork as this facility is not staffed by the Issaquah Food & Clothing Bank.

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:

Thanks to overwhelming community response and government assistance this past year, our current dry goods inventory has maxed out the capacity of our food bank and warehouse. Because dry goods do not move as fast as non-perishables, we are making some changes in order to continue to be responsive to community need and maintain safe and efficient operations for our volunteers, staff, and clients. We appreciate your understanding as we temporarily limit the types of items we can accept and the number of donation drop-off dates. We’re working hard to address our capacity issues and look forward to the day when we can accept all of your generous donations on a more regular basis. Thank you!

If you'd like to do a one-time donation drop-off, please bring your food and personal care items from our Emergency Needs List (below) to our warehouse ONLY during these days and times (if you need additional assistance, email us!):

Warehouse location: AtWork (930 7th Ave NW, Issaquah, WA 98027)

Donation drop off dates/times:

  • Saturday, August 14: 11:30am - 1pm
  • Saturday, October 9: 11:30am-1pm
  • Saturday, December 11:30am-1pm

Please note, we can only accept items from our Emergency Needs List (below and here).

Thank you for your understanding and flexibility!  


Food Drives & Other Opportunities:

If you want to engage further or help us build our Food Project program, please visit the Issaquah Sammamish Food Project website and contact Jim & Chris Berry to get more information about being a Neighborhood Coordinator.

If you are planning a food drive, we respectfully ask that you coordinate your drive in advance of your planning, so that we can best support your efforts while ensuring safety strategies are being met. Please email us to coordinate or if you have any questions. Thank you!

During COVID-19, we are hosting quarterly Clothing Bank Events with seasonal clothing, shoes and accessories available for families to shop from. Check out our Clothing Bank Events page for current clothing needs, donation drop off dates and other information.
