To keep community members as well as staff safe, we are accepting donations by appointment only. Please call the Child Life Department at 503-418-5388 to set up a time to deliver your items.
All donations must be new and unused.
We thank you for your generosity and support of the patients and families at Doernbecher.
Doernbecher wish list
We do NOT accept used items and/or furniture, baby formula, diapers or medical equipment (such as walkers and wheelchairs). We are only able to accept NEW items due to our infection-control policy.
We continue to follow precautions to keep our community safe. Here are three ways to donate this holiday season:
- Secure Donation Bin outside of the Doernbecher main lobby. Bin is accessible 24/7 and locked.
- Drive-through Lot 20 from 12/6-12/22 (add PDF of map in docs), Monday-Friday, 9am-4pm. Take a photo and an ornament to celebrate your donation! (not available on weekends or evenings)
- Schedule a delivery appointment by calling Child Life at 503-418-5388
Thank you to all who wish to donate this year. Happy Holidays!
