Issaquah’s Eastside Baby Corner seeks to collect 5,000 pairs of pants

Springfree Trampoline in Issaquah will be hosting Eastside Baby Corner’s 8th annual Pants Party from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., Saturday, Sept. 9, at 1875 NW Poplar Way.

The goal of Pants Party is to collect 5,000 pairs of pants for children (birth to age 12) so that these can be given to the children in the organization’s service area that desperately need them. As a part of hosting, Springfree Trampoline will be raffling off a free trampoline at the event to one lucky family — valued at almost $2,000 (installation included).

“Springfree Trampoline is thrilled to host the 8th annual Pants Party,” said Jody Sise of Springfree Trampoline. “We are happy to help our neighbors, EBC, to meet their goal in collecting 5,000 pairs of pants for local children in need this back to school season. We greatly appreciate WARM 106.9 FM, KIND Bars and Macaroni Kids for sponsoring the party. Don’t miss the fun.”

Pants Party is a fun and free event that Eastside Baby Corner puts on each year and it features family-friendly activities, music, pony rides, face painting and so much more. The event is free, but the organization requests that people bring new or gently-used children’s pants to the event to donate. The event is held each year in September so that pants donated at the event can be given to kids for the incoming school year.

How can you help? Individuals or organizations can sign up to host a collection drive of pants before the event and can turn them in on Sept. 9 at the event, helping the organization work toward achieving its goal of 5,000 pairs of pants for the kids that desperately need them. To get signed up and for more information on pants collection drives, contact Christine White at

Eastside Baby Corner helps kids thrive by providing basic necessities for children so that EBC’s partners — schools, human service agencies, food banks, hospitals — can help families become stable, safe, housed, fed and employed. Relying almost exclusively on volunteers, EBC takes in donations of children’s clothing and goods from the community and supplements donations with purchases of the absolute essentials for children the organization guarantees to provide: baby food, formula, car seats, pack n’ plays and diapers.

As the vital safety net under family-assistance providers and families, EBC annually distributes over 70,000 health and care items for kids from birth to age 12 directly to agencies in King, south Snohomish, Kitsap and west Pierce counties. For more information, visit
