2018 Holiday Store: December 4 & 13

Our Holiday store provides young people the opportunity to practice generosity. This empowering activity can provide not only a happier holiday season for our youth and their families, but invests in supporting youth to be caring, generous and civically engaged citizens for our community—and your donation of a new, unwrapped gift make it possible. Gifts for all ages are appropriate as the youth will be giving them to their aunts, grandmothers, siblings, and babies.

Donate items from the Gift Ideas list, sponsor a holiday gift drive at your work, community center, or faith-based organization, or gather gifts with your friends and family. Financial contributions are always welcome—65% of our funding is in-kind contributions, so the dollars go further, and the gifts always find an owner.

Drop-off Deadline: Thursday, November 29

Drop-off Location: Homeplate Youth Services, 12520 SW 3rd St. Beaverton, OR 97005. Call 971-322-9381 or email donations@homeplateyouth.org to arrange drop-off date and time.
