Crayon Drive coming to IGA, QFC

For the young people who find themselves at Children’s Hospital in Seattle, sometimes simple things like a coloring book and a few crayons can be as soothing as the trained staff and smiling doctors. But little things like crayons can be overlooked. Each year, Children’s Hospital goes through over 240,000 crayons, yet each child only gets a couple to use.

Two crayon drop-off events in the Valley collect crayons for the young patients at Children’s Hospital.

The Cascade Team Real Estate agency holds its ninth annual Project Crayon Drive, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, April 12 at the Snoqualmie IGA and North Bend QFC. Throughout the month of April, Cascade Team agents will spread the word about Project Crayon Drive. To learn more, visit or call (425) 313-4752.
