• Holiday gift card drive

    Published October 22 2021

    The city is sponsoring a children’s holiday gift card drive through Nov. 30 for Bellevue families in need of additional support, with Bellevue Parks & Community Services and the Bellevue Firefighters Community Support Foundation (BFCSF) collecting online donations at BFCSF.org/toy-drive-donate

    The Firefighters Foundation will use the donations to purchase gift cards, and the Bellevue School District will distribute the cards to eligible students.

    Originating over two decades ago, the physical food and toy drive morphed into a gift card drive last year during the pandemic. Historically, thousands of children have been served annually during the event. Like last year, boxes will not be available at fire stations for gifts. Please donate online.
