Holiday Gifts for our Youth

String the lights and deck the halls—the season of giving is here! We offer three different ways that you can fulfill the holiday wish lists of our youth and their families. Each opportunity can be tailored to meet your desired level of giving and involvement.

Donate Holiday Gifts

Help ensure that every youth in our program has a special gift to open this holiday season. We are accepting drop-offs of new, unwrapped items at our NE Portland location now until Monday, December 16. Our office is located at 44 NE Morris and is open Monday–Friday, 8:00am–5:00pm. Please coordinate with us if you would like to donate items after this date. 

No need to wrap gifts! However, we do accept wrapping paper and accessories so that Friends and caregivers may wrap the gifts themselves.
