Accepted donations include but are not limited to coats/jackets, sweaters, gloves, hats, and heavy socks. If you are able to bring a donation with you during the event, it would be most appreciated. Or if you are in the Portland area, you can drop a donation off at Ocean Gateway during the following dates and times:
