Holiday Gift Barn - Issaquah Food and Clothing Bank 

Each year Holiday Gift Barn serves children in the Issaquah School District. We turn Pickering Barn into a huge department store where parents choose gifts and stocking stuffers for each of their children. We also have a wrapping station and child care so gifts can stay a surprise until Christmas morning.

Families residing in the Issaquah School District can register online starting November 4th - November 29th. This year's shopping days are Wednesday and Thursday, December 4th and 5th, 2019. For those living outside the Issaquah School District, but within our clothing bank service area, holiday shopping will be available for parents at the Issaquah Food & Clothing Bank beginning Monday, December 9th.

Please join us for a community and information forum presented by the University of Washington's Forefront Suicide Prevention group, a leading voice in student mental health and suicide prevention.

Learn more about how we can all work together to support our teens, and what signs and signals parents, staff, and friends can watch for with students who are struggling. Come for guidance, information, and resources to help to support youth in need and respond to the struggles that they are facing. Presenters will provide skills and work to build confidence to help in having conversations and providing assistance for our youth.

This event is presented by the Issaquah School District, Swedish Medical Center, along with ParentWiser and the Issaquah PTSA Council.

An additional event is planned for Skyline High School in the spring 2020.  


 THE VOICE MENTOR PROGRAM NEEDS YOU!

Volunteers of Issaquah Changing Education (VOICE) is an in-school, volunteer mentoring program that pairs caring community members with Issaquah School District students. VOICE mentors work one-on-one with students throughout the school year. Some students may need academic help; others may need emotional support or a friend and role model. All benefit from a positive, supportive relationship with an adult role model.

VOICE currently has 200+ students on the wait list. We need mentors! Can you help?

Here's what’s involved:

  • Complete a screening process, including a mandatory, in-depth, pre-match training.
  • Time commitment of once/week (30–60 minutes) throughout the school year. Schedule and choice of school is flexible to accommodate mentor availability.
  • Optional supplemental trainings, plus support provided by your mentee’s school and the VOICE team.
  • Most importantly, develop a meaningful relationship with a young person and help them thrive.

    “I have come to learn that I only need to be a caring human being who enjoys spending time with kids. These are relationships that enrich my life as much or maybe more than my mentees’ lives” ~ Recent quote from a long-time VOICE Mentor with 3 mentees
