Snoqualmie Kiwanis: Your efforts helped families

The Kiwanis and Rotary clubs of Snoqualmie Valley extend big thanks to our community for its generous donation of items for Eastside Baby Corner.

Donations were collected at three local grocery stores, North Bend QFC, Snoqualmie Ridge Supermarket and Farmhouse Market in Fall City last Sunday, May 16. Donations of clothes for children birth to 12, baby food, formula, diapers, wipes, shampoo, bottles, teething rings and other items along with children’s furniture and cash were accepted by members of the Kiwanis and Rotary clubs. This is an annual event that the two local service organizations sponsor to benefit the families served by Eastside Baby Corner.

Eastside Baby Corner is an organization based in Issaquah that distributes donations to families in need, food banks and other organizations on the Eastside, including our Valley. Designed to help families with young children, they distribute approximately $3 million worth of items annually.

Again, thanks to everyone who donated items to make the drive such a success. Through your donation, you helped many children feel cared for and valued as important members of our community. And thank you to all our volunteer members from the Rotary and Kiwanis clubs for their time and efforts in making the drive possible.
