Holiday Gift Drive: Help us Meet our Goal!

How We Help

Special Requests

From laptops and music lessons, to work boots and camp fees, our teens request what the need to accomplish their goals. We receive and fulfill special requests every week. Connect on Facebook to see current special requests!

Essentials Boxes

We supply hygiene and personal care products for teens just entering care or transitioning between housing. We’re always collecting essentials to keep these boxes filled!

Backpack Drive

Delivering sturdy, appropriately sized backpacks filled with school supplies meant for high school and college students. We look to go beyond basics, providing scientific and graphing calculators, day planners, thumb drives, and more.

Holiday Gift Drive

We collect individual wish lists and share them with our community to make sure these kids get things they truly want and need. In 2020 we provided holiday gifts to over 400 teens in care, and look forward to growing even more in 2021!

Hear from our teens:

“I teared up seeing all the posts about us, THANK YOU SO MUCH!! We greatly appreciate everything!! And will continue to!!”

“You being here is giving me hope. You’ve already made a difference.”

“No one had ever asked me what I wanted before, much less gotten it for me.”


Help us support Portland’s teens in foster care! We accept items, funds, and even make ongoing donations.
