Thanks to thousands of donors, more than1,800 children received gifts for the holidays last year.
Our holiday gift program is one of the biggest and most exciting annual events put on by the Issaquah Food & Clothing Bank and it is an amazing community effort!
Each year Holiday Gift Barn serves children in the 16 zip code radius served by our clothing bank.
Our COVID-19 safe plan for 2021 is to distribute gift cards to families so that they can shop online for maximum safety! See below for how to participate in this amazing program, either as a donor or a shopper.
We are happy to provide shopping gift cards from a variety of retailers this year, thanks to the generosity of our community! Gift cards will be distributed the week of November 29 - a specific day and pick up time will be assigned prior via email.
Are you able to donate toward Holiday Gift Barn this year? For everyone's safety, we are asking for donations of gift cards or financial gifts only this year. We understand that this is a dramatic change to the gift-buying experience and we thank you for your understanding as we seek to provide the best holiday experience possible for our families while keeping everyone safe! Gift cards will allow parents to shop online to select the exact items that fit their children, giving them the dignity of self-selection and ease of having items delivered straight to their homes.
We are asking for $25 gift cards from retailers preferred by our shoppers, including: Fred Meyer, Target, Walmart, and Amazon.
If you are able to help, please register as a donor and mail your donation to us at "Issaquah Food & Clothing Bank, 179 1st Avenue SE, Issaquah, WA 98027, Attention: Holiday Gift Barn program". If you would like to drop off your gift cards in person at the food bank, please email Erin to coordinate a time to do so.
Please include your name and address so that we can provide you a receipt and acknowledge your gift! If you'd like to make a financial donation, please designate your gift toward "Holiday Gift Barn" and we will use the funds to purchase gift cards to ensure that we have enough for each child.
