The community outreach program organizes food & clothing drives based upon the needs of our community.  Our community outreach program partners with programs such as the IVE Angel Program and the Issaquah Food & Clothing Bank to ensure we are doing our best to meet the needs of our local families. 

Current Community Outreach Programs Include:

Each December, Issaquah Food & Clothing Bank turns the Pickering Barn into a giant department store filled with new toys, games, clothing and other special items donated by the community. Parents who need extra help this season are able to shop for free and choose the perfect gifts for each of their children.

Issaquah Valley Elementary PTA is collecting toys and essentials for this program. With your generous donations, we can support the Issaquah Food & Clothing Bank in their efforts to bring joy to families in need this holiday season. All gifts collected in this drive stay local and support children living in our community. Last year, they served over 1,800 children in the Issaquah School District!
 
We are collecting new, unwrapped gifts for ages 0-18 years old. Please see the display in the IVE front lobby for gift ideas and wish list items (but feel free to come up with your own)! Any new toy or gift will be greatly appreciated. Donations of gift wrap and other supplies needed for the gift-wrapping station are also helpful.

New this year! Check out the Issaquah Food & Clothing Bank Amazon wish list to easily order gifts for Holiday Gift Barn. Please have gifts delivered to your house and drop them off at IVE. This is just a helpful tool to use if needed, ALL gifts are welcome! https://www.amazon.com/…/w…/ls/O4RJ17O33OOE/ref=hz_ls_biz_ex

Don't forget! You can support the IVE PTA every time you shop at Amazon Smile by clicking on this link:
