Our focus is and always has been to create a great place for friends and families to come together and enjoy the wonderful community that we all share here!
Aside from our primary goal of serving delicious food, it has also always been a part of our mission to foster a sense of interconnectedness between our business and the world around us. We do this through supporting local volunteer organizations and encouraging our employees to get involved whenever possible. We’d like to think that this love and care is demonstrated in every bite of food we serve- made fresh just for YOU by people who strive to know your name when you walk through the door!
Pizza with Purpose
We are lucky to partner with many wonderful community programs here in the Snoqualmie Valley! Whether it’s through donations, feeding volunteers, or facilitating a community collection spot for important causes, we try to always say YES! when it comes to getting involved with important organizations nearby.
To find out more about some of the programs we support, check out the websites listed below:
Riverview Transitions Services – This is an awesome program that helps students with disabilities learn vocational & independent living skills for the real world. We are so proud to partner with Transition Services to provide year-long internships for students eager to learn employment skills.
Valley Power Packs – This incredible (and relatively new!) group has worked hard in the last years to raise awareness about food insecurity for kids in our school district –and to solve it. Their organizers are absolutely wonderful and Blake’s is happy to be Carnation’s drop-off location for power-packs all school-year long. If you have more questions about how or what is needed, visit the the VPP website to learn more and sign up to donate!
Carnation Farmer’s Market – Blake’s is happy to have been involved in sponsorship of the CFM, both as a part of the Main Street Maven’s group and as donors for their annual kick off party! The Carnation Farmer’s Market is a wonderful slice of the Snoqualmie Valley and our sweet town of Carnation that brings us together and is a bright spot in the week every Tuesday afternoon May-October.

Carnation Elementary PTSA & Riverview School District – We LOVE our schools! For nearly 27 years, Blake's sold pizzas to Tolt Middle School ASB for resale to help raise money for student activities. Though, alas, National dietary restrictions changed our ability to do this, we still provide prize pizzas for exceptional TMS students! We also happily partner with PTSA groups at both Carnation schools for many fundraising & volunteer events!
Stewardship Partners – An awesome organization in the Seattle area working with private land owners to restore the watersheds of Washington and the Puget Sound. If you ever need a great community volunteer opportunity – check these guys out for lots of tree planting opportunities!
