Holiday Gift Drive 2022

Holiday Gift Drive

ABOUT THE GIFT DRIVE
Each year, we have requested gifts for youth from our generous community. We are able to provide gift tags with ideas. Please let us know if you would like them for a ‘tree’ or employee distribution. Our Friends created these ideas based on the interests of their youth. This year, we are prioritizing gift cards for experiences to be donated. Then Friends can pick out the activity that best matches the interests of the youth they serve and deliver it to them.

When purchasing gift cards, keep in mind that we serve youth ranging from ages 5 - 18 years old. We respectfully ask that you do not purchase gifts that depict guns or violence. Physical gifts do not need to be wrapped! We do accept wrapping paper and gifting accessories so that Friends, staff, and youth may wrap gifts themselves.

AMAZON WISHLIST
You can also shop our Amazon Wishlist and have gifts shipped directly to us. Plus, double your support by using Amazon Smile and choosing Friends of the Children—Portland as your charity. Go to our wishlist at amzn.to/3g8SovW

DELIVER BY DECEMBER 12
Unwrapped items and gift cards must arrive at 44 NE Morris St. by Monday, December 12th. We can also pick up gifts from your location. Please let us know if you will need this service.

TAX RECEIPT
If you would like a tax deduction/gift acknowledgment, please include your contact information with the gift or on the gift tag.
