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:

  1. Secure Donation Bin outside of the Doernbecher main lobby. Bin is accessible 24/7 and locked.
  2. 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)
  3. Schedule a delivery appointment by calling Child Life at 503-418-5388

Thank you to all who wish to donate this year. Happy Holidays!
