Our Holiday Gifts program brings a little more holiday joy for families and helps reduce some of the financial burden of the shopping season.

We heard from so many of you how helpful gift cards are in being able to choose the right gifts for your children.

We are thrilled to bring back our gift card program this year, as well as some additional holiday treats.

For Donors

Are you able to donate gift cards or financial gifts toward our Holiday Gift Program? Gift cards allow parents or guardians the joy of selecting the perfect gift for each of their children.

We are seeking donations of $25 gift cards from the retailers our families use most: Amazon, Fred Meyer, and Target.

If you would like to help, you can

  • Make a financial donation online here, from now through the end of the year.

    Donate Funds

  • Drop off gift cards in person at the food bank by November 20. Please email erin@issaquahfoodbank.org to coordinate a time, and include your name and address so we can provide you a receipt and acknowledge your gift

  • Mail gift cards to arrive by November 20 or a check to:
    Issaquah Food & Clothing Bank
    Attn: Holiday Gift Barn
    179 1st Avenue SE

The IFCB team will continue to try and assist families who have already registered with the food bank and our holiday gift program, if we have remaining gift cards.
