Donate Funds

We’ll use every nickel for good.

When we are running low on essential items, we use your donations to ensure we can best meet our clients’ needs. Funds also greatly support our Emergency Assistance Program. We are proud to be able to help people stay in their homes and to help keep their homes warm, especially in the cold season.

Your tax-deductible gift will help us keep our doors open, especially now when so many more people are coming to us. Please consider making a financial contribution today.

Donate Clothing

Consider us when you’re doing your seasonal clearing out of clothing you no longer wear. We accept lightly used, CLEAN clothing and shoes for men, women, children, and babies. 

If you have usable clothing to spare, especially for children and infants, please place it in a bag and bring it to us at 179 1st Avenue SE in Issaquah. We have a 24 hour drop box at the front of our building. 

For families challenged by tough times, new clothing is not typically in the budget, but appropriate clothing increases confidence, helps with job acquisition, weather appropriateness, and self-dignity.

Items Most Needed:

  • New socks and underwear
  • Large diapers (sizes 4, 5, and 6)
  • Seasonal clothing
  • Shoes
  • Children's clothing
  • Toiletries & toilet paper
  • Kitchenware

Families that are homeless need cover: something as simple as a tarp and a bungee cord can keep people out of the rain.

We can also take some household items provided they meet our guidelines.

Guidelines for Clothing Bank Donations:

  • Clean (no pet hair, smells, dust, etc.)
  • Not stained, ripped, worn, or broken
  • No off-season clothing or household items (we don't have space to store it)
  • No furniture (we don't have space)
  • No electronic items or appliances
  • No used socks or underwear
  • No knives

You should know that if we can’t use it or do not have the capacity, we re-donate to our partners at the Goodwill. Feel free to ask about this when you drop off your donation!
