Every year, the local community comes together to celebrate and support Mercer Island Youth and Family Services at its Annual Breakfast, the biggest MIYFS Foundation fundraising event of the year. In addition to attending the Breakfast, MIYFS is encouraging everyone to “Shop and Dine Local” to help raise funds for MIYFS programs and services.

On Feb. 7-8, 15 Mercer Island businesses will donate 10 percent of their proceeds to the MIYFS Foundation. Appointments booked and paid for and gift vouchers purchased over the two days will also be included in donations to MIYFS.

“It’s so heartening to see the strong sense of community on Mercer Island, with local businesses supporting local residents through MIYFS,” said Cindy Goodwin, MIYFS director. “We are grateful for those businesses returning and happy to have several new businesses join this year.”
