Mercer Island's Youth and Family Services and the Mercer Island Community and Event Center are asking the community to help in providing some of life's necessities to low income Island families this holiday season, according to a city press release.
The Giving Tree is located at the MICEC. Hanging on the tree are tags for grocery gift cards, health care items and family products. Participants will remove a Giving Tree tag and return these new (unopened) items by December 18th, 2012 to the Youth and Family Service Office or they can drop them off in the MICEC's Giving Tree Collection Box.
Mercer Island Youth and Family Services will make these products available at the food pantry to families in need during the holidays and throughout the year.
