Holiday Toy Program

"Share the Joy" holiday toys programs right before Christmas. Applications will be available shortly after Halloween and will be due mid-November (date tba) but we will still take them afterwards if you can't make it.  Families must live in the Enumclaw School District.  Toy pick-up will be December 15th 2023, time tba.  Call 360-886-1011 if you have questions.

For donors:  Tags are available at Lake Sawyer Store, Black Diamond Library, Black Diamond Community Center, and St. Barbara Church.  Toys will be due in early December (cut-off date tba) so that we have time to shop for missing toys and bag up toys before the parents pick them up.

St. Barbara Catholic Church Parishioners:  We do not yet have information on how the program will be run this year at the church, so stay tuned for updates.

To donate school supplies, please see our School Supplies page soon for this year's list (we are still working on it).

Questions?  Call us at: 360-886-1011.

The beginning of the school year is fraught with stress for low income families.  Not only are there clothes to buy but many go without the much needed school supplies throughout the year.

Backpacks and School Supplies are distributed in late August for Black Diamond area youth in the Enumclaw School District. Applications in both English and Spanish are available on the School Supplies page.

Applications for 2023 are DUE on August 1st, school supply donations are due August 14th, and the distribution event will be on Wednesday, August 16th, 1pm-5pm.  If you miss the deadline or can not attend the distribution event, please call us immediately at 360-886-1011.  Items will continue to be available on Mondays and Wednesdays, 10am-3pm, through the end of September.

The Enumclaw School District offers free breakfast and lunch programs for children from low-income families during the week.  The other two days of the week are up to their families, which can be a struggle.  In 2014, Rebecca Olness with the help of the local Kiwanis Club started the Backpack food program for low income children attending the Black Diamond Elementary. 

Every Thursday during the school year, Becky and members of the Kiwanis Club put together bags of food and deliver them to the school so the students can pick up bags on Friday Morning.  Donations of small packagable food are always accepted.  Please mark the donations for the Backpack Program so they don't get mixed in with the regular food bank items.
