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, the MIYFS Foundation is encouraging everyone to “Shop and Dine Local” to help raise funds for MIYFS programs and services. On Wednesday, February 7th and Thursday, February 8th, the Mercer Island businesses listed below will donate 10% of proceeds to MIYFS Foundation.

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

Please support local businesses supporting the community by shopping and dining at these locations on February 7th and 8th. Appointments booked and paid for, as well as gift vouchers purchased over the two days, will also be included in donations to MIYFS. Remember to let the businesses know you are shopping local for MIYFS!
