The Mercer Island firefighters are conducting their annual food drive from Nov. 20-22.

They’ll be collecting donations at the North Fire Station, 3030 78th Ave. SE, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Monday and Tuesday, and will be outside both QFC stores on the Island on Wednesday from about 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

They are looking for donations of non-perishable goods, which will be given to the Mercer Island Food Pantry.

The firefighters are doing their annual coat drive during the month of December also at the North Fire Station, and will be collecting new coats with gift receipts and giving them to kids in need on the Island, as well as to the Treehouse Foundation.
