Giving Tree: You’re invited to support neighbors in need by donating toys to the Issaquah Food and Clothing Bank holiday toy drive. Donate a new, unwrapped toy or gift item and bring it to Santa’s cabin or Regal Cinemas by December 4. Choose a gift you know a child will love, or pick a gift tag from the Giving Tree. Gifts are needed for children ages birth to 18. Santa and his elves will ensure that donations are delivered safely to the Issaquah Food and Clothing Bank’s gift barn, where adult family members will select the perfect gift for each child.
Food Donations: Throughout the holiday season, Santa will be delighted to accept donations of non-perishable food items for the Issaquah Food and Clothing Bank. Drop by the Winter Woodland and give your donations to Santa himself.
Photos with Santa: Professional Santa photography will be available at Grand Ridge Plaza beginning Friday, November 24. Throughout the holiday season, Santa resides in a cozy cabin at his Winter Woodland next to Regal Cinemas. Santa photographers Arthur & Associates will offer photography for purchase seven days a week.READ MORE
