For the first time in decades, the Merry Christmas Issaquah fund appears it will close the year well behind its goal, and well behind last year’s contributions.
As of Dec. 30, the fund was just past $50,000. The goal for the fund drive is $65,000.
Merry Christmas Issaquah benefits Issaquah Community Services, the nonprofit agency that provides emergency financial aid to families facing eviction, utility shut-off, medical needs and more.
Payments are never made directly to the client.
Issaquah Community Services is all volunteers, allowing 100 percent of donations to go directly to aid families in need.
The city provides office space and telephones.
