Holiday Gift Barn Registration Toolkit

Welcome to the 9th season of our Holiday Gift Barn program! Due to COVID-19 safety concerns, our program is changing this year. 

To ensure everyone's safety while still brightening families' holiday season, we will provide holiday shopping gift cards only this year. Gift cards will ensure families can choose the right gifts for their children and even shop online to minimize any health risks this winter.

Holiday Gift Barn provides extra help during the holiday season for children ages newborn - 18 years living within the Issaquah School District and/or the IFCB Food & Clothing Bank's 16 zip code service area

Gift cards will be available for pick up at the Issaquah Food & Clothing Bank (179 1st Avenue SE, Issaquah) Monday, November 30-Thursday, December 3, from 10am to 3pm. Please note, pre-registration is required; after registering, you will receive an email mid-November with your assigned pick up day and time.


In order to participate in Holiday Gift Barn, you must meet the following requirements:

  1. Be an active, registered client of the Issaquah Food & Clothing Bank (not a regular food bank shopper? Register for services here), AND
