Did you know we have over fifty teens in foster care in Central Oregon? Teenagers in foster care are less likely to have their holiday gift requests fulfilled when compared to younger youth. Consider browsing the wish list and pledging to fill a teenager wish for the holiday season- as a community we can show teens in foster care that we see them, care about them, and believe in them!

2. Donate a General Gift for Any Youth in Foster Care

While there are shopping events available for foster providers to utilize for holiday gifts, there are situations   where children come into care shortly before the holidays. When this happens, Every Child Central Oregon utilizes general toy drive donations to ensure that every child receives a gift they will love during the holiday season. Donate a new, unwrapped gift to one of our generous gift drive box partners at the donation sites listed above

3. Contribute Financially Towards Holiday Giving

Every Child Central Oregon happily accepts financial donations, which are used to fill gaps in giving and be combined for larger, more expensive gifts, like electronics or kids' bikes. To make a financial contribution, please visit: www.everychildcentraloregon.org/donate and leave a note in the designation field that your kind donation is to be used for holiday giving.

By wrapping around children and families experiencing foster care during the holidays, you not only provide a gift to be opened but also acknowledgment and love of the community as a whole!
