It’s just one week until the Mercer Island Youth and Family Services’ (MIYFS) 21st Annual Fundraising Breakfast, which returns this year to an in-person breakfast event at the Mercer Island Island Community & Event Center. Join your neighbors on Wednesday, February 8th, at 7:30 am, to learn about the critical work of MIYFS in the Mercer Island community.

This year’s theme is Community, Connection & Compassion, and the breakfast program aims to “foster connection and resiliency among all island residents.”

Doors open at 7 am for coffee; and the program concludes at 8:30 am. The MIYFS Foundation’s exclusive mission is to support the programs and services of the City’s MIYFS Department. There is no charge to attend the breakfast; there is a suggested minimum donation of $250 per person or $500 per couple.

Did you know?

The annual MIYFS Foundation Breakfast is our primary fundraising event to sponsor the Mercer Island Youth & Family Services provided to all Island residents including:

  • Emergency Assistance for our friends and neighbors in need. This includes our Food Pantry where demand DOUBLED from 35 to 70+ families a week during the pandemic. The need continues to climb to over 100+ families a week.
  • Family Assistance Program for families in crisis and back-to-school and holiday programs that provide school supplies and holiday gifts for 100+ families who might otherwise go without.
  • Mental Health Services, specifically the counselors in our schools, mental health services in the community, and services for our seniors, as well as services to combat substance abuse – all of which continue to rise over the last 5+ years.

The demand for all of these services have increased significantly in the years since the pandemic began, and we are committed to serving our friends and neighbors to meet their needs.

Please join us on February 8th, and thank you for supporting the Mercer Island Youth and Family Services Foundation! Register today!
