January 9th Community Outreach Food Drive

Many thanks to all who participated in the December food and toy drive. Toys and gift cards were delivered to the Eastside Baby Corner and gift cards to the Issaquah Food and Clothing Bank. Some gift cards were held in reserve for emergent needs.

The Community Outreach team will hold another food drive on behalf of the Issaquah Food and Clothing Bank on January 9th, from 11:00 AM to 1:00 PM. Members can also pick up their 2021 OSLC offering envelopes at this time. 

Following is a list of items needed by the individuals and families in our community during this time of severe distress. Please bring them by on January 9th, or if its more convenient for you, send a check to OSLC to the attention of the Community Outreach Committee and we’ll get it to the Food Bank.

Thank you for your generosity.
