Hello Members and Friends of Our Savior,
Once again, the Community Outreach Team is planning a food drive for the Issaquah Food and Clothing bank that provides support to hundreds of families each week. The Food Bank now provides case management, youth feeding, Groceries to Go, school supplies, toiletries and more to local families. Additionally, the Food Bank recently received funding by the City to provide outreach to the homeless, and helped 60 individuals find shelter during last week’s cold and snowy weather.
The date for the next drive is Saturday, March 6th from 10 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. when you can drop off your items at Our Savior. Stop by and say Hi!
Here are the items needed most by the Food Bank:
There are other ways to support this important mission, as well:
ONLINE ORDERS SHIPPED DIRECTLY FROM VENDORS:
Items from our Clothing Bank List and Emergency Needs Lists or Amazon wish list can be shipped directly to the Food Bank building at: 179 1st Avenue SE, Issaquah, WA 98027. Please include a gift message with your first and last name so they can acknowledge your gift!
Click on the links below to access online options for local delivery directly to the food bank.
FINANCIAL DONATIONS AND GIFT CARDS:
They also need financial contributions and $25 grocery store gift cards. Your financial donations help them purchase fresh produce, meat, and dairy items, and continue to run their vital programs. Grocery store gift cards allow them to provide self-selection options to shoppers when product availability limits their selection. If you’d prefer to write a check to avoid the 3% online processing fee, they welcome checks made out to the Issaquah Food and Clothing Bank and mailed to 179 1st Avenue SE, Issaquah, WA 98027.
