The COVID-19 pandemic has had a harsh impact on thousands in our community, but did you know that food insecurity for children in King County jumped by 54% in 2020? Our youth feeding programs such as Summer Lunch, Lunch for the Break, and Power Packs help to support families with children and teens by providing free breakfast, lunch, and snack foods that are both nutritious and kid-friendly throughout the year. Last year, our youth feeding programs helped over 1,900 families in our community, many using multiple or all of our programs to help feed their children and keep their fridges and pantries stocked with healthy options. A $100 gift can provide a child with breakfast, lunch, and snack foods for an entire month. Last year, our donors blew us away by raising $45,000 for our Summer Lunch program! Help us reach our 2021 fundraising goal of $50,000 towards all of our youth feeding programs to help kids in our 110 square mile service area get the nutrition they need. Donate today!
We have thoroughly enjoyed our annual Lake Sammamish Fireworks Show to raise funds for children facing food insecurity in our community. Unfortunately, the 2021 fireworks display will not be held due to continued safety limitations. We hope that you will find alternate ways to make your 4th of July celebration special this year and plan to join us for a huge celebration in July of 2022!
Please join Kritsonis & Lindor and the Issaquah Food & Clothing Bank to continue fundraising efforts for our youth feeding programs despite the inability to hold the fireworks show this year.
John Kritsonis and Karl Lindor of Kritsonis & Lindor at Windermere Real Estate have been funding this event since 2015 with a total of $172,112 raised to support the Issaquah Food & Clothing Bank. In addition to funding equipment purchases and our Summer Lunch program over the years, they have helped us expand our reach and have been committed advocates to our mission.
Thank you Kritsonis & Lindor team!
