Local real estate broker Karl Lindor is stepping up to the plate.
Lindor showed he cares about keeping a roof over families’ heads with a $500 donation to the Merry Christmas Issaquah in July fundraiser.
Now, he’s challenging his peers in the real estate community to match it, and show their dedication to helping Issaquah residents at their lowest.

With just two weeks left in the month, the Merry Christmas Issaquah in July fundraising drive is well short of its ultimate goal.

Imagine an Issaquah winter.
It’s cold, rainy and windy, and snow is certainly not out of the question during this dreary time period.
Now, imagine enduring this winter when the place you call home is just a truck.

Tim Flood for City Council
I’ve had the opportunity over the last few weeks to talk to Tim Flood about issues in the city and his candidacy for Issaquah City Council. I am interested in the way Tim desires to represent the citizens of Issaquah. He wants to bring balance to development and transportation improvements to protect citizens from further traffic congestion.

More people donated to Merry Christmas Issaquah than ever
Issaquah Community Services volunteers would like to extend a heartfelt thank you and sincere gratitude to the numerous donors who have made it possible, through the Merry Christmas Issaquah fund, to support those in our community who have fallen on hard times.
Our volunteers have the humbling privilege of administering donated funds to those in need. With more than $80,000 raised, we can continue to provide emergency assistance to the families and individuals that live in the Issaquah School District that cannot meet their basic needs from month to month. Having a roof over one’s head, running water, lights and a warm home can now be possible for almost 500 families.
We especially would like to recognize the hard-working team at The Issaquah Press, as they have been a major supporter of this service to our community since 1981. In total, they have helped us raise more than $1 million since 1981. Read more

Fund has record number of donors
When The Issaquah Press began its 2014 Merry Christmas Issaquah series more than two months ago, readers met Michelle Curtis.
Curtis is exactly the type of person Issaquah Community Services seeks to assist. She is a survivor, a fighter and, most of all, a mother intent on seeking a better life for her family.

After a flood of donations cascaded into the Issaquah Community Services office last week, the Merry Christmas Issaquah fund is now less than $25,000 away from its ultimate goal.
Every penny matters as we gather donations to keep needy Issaquah families sheltered and warm during the year.
Issaquah Community Services offers emergency financial aid to residents of the Issaquah School District in the form of utility payments, rent assistance and other miscellaneous contributions, depending on a client’s specific need.
“Helping nearly 500 families get by every single year is the sole reason why we exist,” said Lori Birrell, ICS board president.
