Mercer Island’s Youth and Family Services and the Mercer Island Community and Event Center are asking the community to help in providing some of life’s necessities to low-income Island families this holiday season.

The Giving Tree is located at the MICEC. Hanging on the tree are tags for grocery gift cards, health care items and family products. Participants pick a tag and return new (unopened) items by Dec. 16 to the Youth and Family Services office, or they can drop them off in the MICEC’s Giving Tree Collection Box.
