Gift Drive

Help Every Child Central Oregon Provide a Holly Jolly Holiday Season to Youth in Foster Care!

There are two ways to provide a smile to a youth experiencing foster care during this year’s Holiday Season.

1. Shop a wish list for specific gift requests

Visit our My NeighbOR platform (link below) to view holiday wish lists created by kids in care. Choose a list, have fun shopping, and return your specific gifts purchases (unwrapped) to one of our generous Anchor (donation) sites.

To access the My NeighbOR wish list platform visit this link: My NeighbOR - Needs - Central Oregon. Customer Self-Service (microsoftcrmportals.com)

Anchor Sites & Hours:

  • Bend Nazarene Church, Tuesday-Thursdays 10am-3pm
  • Prineville Nazarene Church, Tuesday-Wednesday 10-12pm
  • LINC Madras, Monday-Wednesday 10-2pm

2. Did you know that 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 lists and pledging to fill a teenagers’ wishes 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!

Anchor Sites & Hours:

3. Prefer to buy a general toy/gift for any child experiencing foster care to receive?

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 partners serving as a drop off location.

Toys/gifts can be dropped off to:

  • Redmond Chamber of Commerce
  • Mountain View Church (Redmond)
  • Proust Coffee (Redmond)
  • Redmond Proficiency Academy (Both Locations, Redmond)
  • Signet Realty (Madras)
  • Mariposa Real Estate (Redmond)
  • Journey Church (Bend)
  • First Interstate Bank (Redmond)
  • First Interstate Bank (Madras)
  • First Interstate Bank (Sisters)
  • Elite Medi Spa (Bend)
  • Father's House (Bend)
  • Open Space Studios (Bend)
  • Bend Nazarene Church

By wrapping around children and families experiencing foster care during the holidays, you not only provide a gift to be opened, but also acknowledgement and love of the community as a whole! If you have any questions, please reach out to Brieanna Rogers at b.rogers@everychildcentraloregon.org.
