Successful holiday tree lot fundraiser

The Mercer Island Youth and Family Services Foundation netted a total of $44,000 after expenses at its fundraising holiday tree lot this year in Town Center. All donations received will support the city’s food pantry directly, as well as provide general support for important social services programs delivered by the city in 2021. Over the course of three weekends, approximately 75 volunteers helped sell 1,100 trees and wreaths. More than 400 customers made an additional donation on site. Courtesy photo
