Help the Homeless
As winter weather continues there are opportunities in our community to help those people in shelter who are experiencing homelessness during severe cold and snow. Issaquah residents needing housing during this time are being housed in both Issaquah and Snoqualmie Valley, due to the increased need.  Here is information about how you can help if you are moved to do so.

The most urgent needs right now are meals, prepackaged food items, and money. Due to COVID protocols, shortage of staff and space, none of the agencies can accept any drop-off items this week. To help them centralize operations, and best plan for staffing needs and space, they have asked us to direct donations through the following online methods:

  • Issaquah Food and Clothing Bank:
  • Snoqualmie Valley Shelter Services:
    • Meals (dinner and breakfast): sign up here (please scroll down for the calendar sign up)
    • Money: donations are accepted online. For additional information and questions, please call or text (425) 773-2874.

Thank you to Councilmember Barbara De Michele for the details.
