Volunteer Services Activity for October
Volunteer Services has started the year collecting items for the Issaquah Food
& Clothing Bank. The Food & Clothing Bank has really had to modify procedures with all of the people needing support during these trying times and the space limitations in their facility. We
are therefore asking that members only donate items on the list below during this drive. Since we will not be meeting in person in October, we are asking members to drop off items at the following
Issaquah Community Center parking lot (east side), Monday, 10/11/21, 2:00 to
3:00 p.m. (Mary Nassif)
Klahanie QFC parking lot, Tuesday, 10/12/21, 2:00 to 3:00 p.m. (Sharon
If you want to contribute but are unable to drop off on these dates, feel free
to contact Mary Nassif (email@example.com) and we can make arrangements to collect the items from you.

The Greater Issaquah Chamber is proud to produce the largest two-day festival in the state--Salmon Days. Salmon Days is a long-standing,
family-friendly event that started 52 years ago to educate in a fun and engaging way, via the spectacle of salmon returning "in our wildest streams" to the Issaquah Creek to spawn. The festival is
possible thanks to the support from our 500+ volunteers. Volunteering is a great way to help us put our best foot forward as a community and show outsiders what Issaquah is all
about. Questions? Call 425-313-8972 or email email@example.com.
