The toy, food, and clothing drives that directly benefit Hopelink, the Issaquah Food and Clothing Bank and the Snoqualmie Valley Food Bank wrapped up for the 2018 holiday season on December 20th. 

Due to the generosity of local businesses and community members, Eastside Fire and Rescue collected over 300 totes, two huge rolling bins full of toys, clothing, and over 15,000 lbs. of nonperishable food. Separately, over 1500 individual toys were donated by the community during the Reindeer Engine drives throughout the neighborhoods.

 Along with the toys and food generously donated, EF&R received over $2,000 in cash that has been donated to assist local families during the holiday season.

These programs are only successful due to the support of the community. EF&R would like to thank everyone for their donations, especially:

Fred Meyer

University House

SpringHills Suites Issaquah

PetSmart Sammamish 

The Reindeer Engine will return in 2019 and we look forward to seeing you.
