Holiday Gift Barn

Holiday Gift Barn is one of the biggest and most exciting events at the Issaquah Food & Clothing Bank.

Holiday Gift Barn serves 1,500 children in the Issaquah School District each year. We turn Pickering Barn into a huge toy store where parents can choose gifts and stocking stuffers for each of their children. We also have a wrapping station and child care so the gifts can stay a surprise until Christmas morning.

Thank you to everyone who donated this year to help make sure that every child has a perfect gift under the tree on Christmas morning. Clients are shopping at Holiday Gift Barn December 5th and 6th, but we will also be transforming our clothing bank into a mini holiday gift shop December 10th through 13th. If you still have gifts to donate, they may be brought to the Issaquah Food & Clothing Bank Monday through Friday 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

Interested in donating to the Holiday Gift Barn next year? Check out our donor toolkit for all the details.

We need your help at the Holiday Gift Barn! With nearly 100 volunteers needed each day, this event would not be possible without volunteer help. There are a variety of volunteer options, from set up and decorating, to organizing gifts, or helping families wrap gifts. Most volunteer opportunities are for people 16 years and older, but check the registration information for limited opportunities for younger volunteers.

Volunteer registration is now LIVE!!! CLICK HERE to sign up.

Do you need extra help this holiday season?

Registration for the 2018 Holiday Gift Barn is closed as of midnight on Nov. 30, 2018, however, if you missed shopping at the Holiday Gift Barn, there is another opportunity. Those who live in our clothing bank service area can do their holiday shopping at the Issaquah Food & Clothing Bank during normal client service hours Monday, December 10th through Thursday, December 13th.

If you have a question about your Holiday Gift Barn shopping time, please call 425-392-4123 and choose the option to speak to someone immediately. Rebecca and Erin will both be out of the office at Pickering Barn Dec. 3-7, so aren't able to answer phone calls.
