The Giving from the Heart Breakfast is a Mercer Island community event that benefits Youth and Family Services, held the second Wednesday of February each year that attracts over 500 recognized and active community members. Whether you are a first-timer or traditional attendee, this lively, fast-paced and dynamic community celebration will prove to be inspirational, informative and entertaining--it's a true tradition among Islanders. The event is free, but attendees will be asked to make a donation to Youth and Family Services at the event.
Proceeds from the event directly support Mercer Island Youth and Family Services (MIYFS), the human services department of the City of Mercer Island. MIYFS touches every member of our community through counselors in the schools, senior outreach and advocacy, affordable family counseling, drug and alcohol prevention programs, arrested youth and early intervention programs, family assistance and a thriving thrift store.
