Ways YOU can Help

Our special programs are a great way to get involved with Issaquah Food & Clothing Bank. We need volunteers and donations for all of our programs, and the variety of programs means there are lots of options for you, your family, your office or your community to jump in and help. Click on the links below to get more information about each program. For volunteering questions, email Lisa and for donation and/or program questions, email Erin.
