The IH PTSA Angel Program

The Angel Program strives to assist families who need a little extra help making ends meet... a confidential, behind-the-scenes, IH PTSA Program made possible through donations from IHS parents, the greater Issaquah community, including Superior Seconds, Issaquah Food Bank, as well as hard working, dedicated parent volunteers.

The Angel Closet is a safe place for students to "shop." Toiletries, other personal care items, along with weekend food packs are available for all students throughout the year. 

Additionally, the Angel Closet is located in a private IHS area, where students may also shop periodically for school supplies, homecoming clothing, booster wear, coats, jeans, and more.  

Need Help?

IHS Students who need clothing, school supplies, groceries, or necessities of any kind, and qualify for financial aid, may complete the Scholarship Eligibility Application in the Attendance and Counseling Offices.  Return the forms to IHS Attendance Secretary, Lisa Hollingsworth. Questions, email Lisa Hollingsworth, or call at 425-837-6012. The Attendance Secretary's Office will coordinate, and follow-up with the Angel Program.

Special Requests:

Students needing something extra to be successful in school, and/or feel part of the community, email requests to Lisa Hollingsworth, call at 425-837-6012, or click here to print the SPECIAL REQUEST Form. Special requests are accepted throughout the year, including items like academic, field trip, and club fees, along with groceries, household necessities, ORCA passes, gas cards, shoes, prom items, etc.

Senior Items:

Caps and gowns, graduation tickets, yearbooks, and Senior All-Night Party tickets are all special for the senior class.  We understand how these costs can be overwhelming. Needing assistance, questions, contact Lisa Hollingsworth, or click here to print the SPECIAL REQUEST Form. 

Holiday Gifts:

Every holiday season, the Angel Closet distributes gift bags full of teenage-specific extras to brighten the holidays, over the winter break.  The kids love them!
