The Project Crayon Drive collection for Seattle Children’s, sponsored by Cascade Team Real Estate based in Issaquah, will have drop off locations from 11 a.m. – 2 p.m. May 9, at Caffé Ladro in the Issaquah Highlands and the QFC in Klahanie.

The hospital distributes more than 240,000 crayons each year, spending more than $12,000, yet each patient only receives two crayons due to limited supply.

Cascade is on track to deliver more than 24,000 crayons to Children’s, 10 percent of the annual need. The public is invited to donate crayons (nontoxic Crayola brand only) during the drive.
