Our programs rely on not only monetary donations to support the continuation of our work, but also on in-kind donations to help participants overcome barriers. We ask that you check in with us before dropping off donations or beginning a donation drive. At certain times we may have an excess of an item and know of an organization who needs your gift more than we do.
Some folks are surprised to hear that our number one need is gift cards. Gift cards to Fred Meyer, Target, Walmart, etc. give our participants the opportunity to purchase personal care items, clothing, and other necessities for themselves and their children. With gift cards they can also purchase TriMet bus tickets. Next time you’re at the store, think about picking up a gift card for a survivor!
Due to limited storage, we cannot accept donations of clothing, furniture, or travel-sized toiletries. We suggest you contact our friends at Community Warehouse to donate furniture and Dress for Success to donate clothing.
