Spring is in the air, and the local YWCA organization is asking people to help provide 1,000 spring baskets for homeless and low-income children living in YWCA shelter and housing programs.

YWCA shelters provide a safe haven to families working hard to move forward and build a better future.

People can donate personally created or store-bought baskets filled with fun items, such as toys, games, learning supplies or candy. The organization is also accepting cash donations to purchase baskets. Donate baskets at various locations by Monday.

Contact Brenda McCallon at mccallon@ywcaworks.org or 556-1354 to participate or to learn more. Find sign-up forms and drop off locations at the YWCA website.

The organization is in the midst of construction on YWCA Family Village in the Issaquah Highlands. Families should start settling in the residences during the summer.
