The City of Mercer Island and the MIYFS Foundation are pleased to announced our 3rd annual Open House – Sunday, October 1st from 1 to 4 p.m. Please plan to bring your family on a tour of the Red Brick Building in Luther Burbank Park. You will have an opportunity to learn about services and programs here at Mercer Island Youth & Family Services. You will be the first to purchase from this season’s glass pumpkin collection! And, we will have lots of kids activities too. The pumpkin carver will return again to show off his artistry!
Also, this year, we are asking the Mercer Island community to “Fill the Wagon.” One of our Programs, the Mercer Island Food Pantry, serves approximately 150 Island families who are experiencing food scarcity – we see about 1,500 visits to the Pantry each year. Please help us re-stock our shelves for the fall, and consider bringing a donation of non-perishables with you to the Open House. The Food Pantry is currently in need of boxed cereal, canned fruit, chili, tuna, hearty soups, baking supplies, peanut butter & jelly and rice products.
If you have questions about our Open House event, please connect with Sari Weiss, (206) 275-7756, firstname.lastname@example.org
