Mercer Island businesses giving this year

Michele Tessler, owner of Tatters, is once again donating a portion of all sales proceeds during the month of December to Mercer Island Youth and Family Services.

MI Martial Arts collected 1,000 pounds of food for the Youth and Family Services Food Pantry.

Each year Island Books hosts book sales on fundraisers for the schools and nonprofit groups in the community, giving half of the gross profits on those evenings to the groups. This November they hosted nine book fairs for local schools, contributing over $15,200 to those schools. Over the years Island Books has contributed over $325,000 to a variety of nonprofit organizations.

Studio 904’s third annual Santa’s Workshop, a fundraiser for Pasado’s Safe Haven, raised over $2,100, exceeding their goal. The event featured handmade greeting cards and gift items as well as raffle prizes and gift certificates donated by Island merchants.
