Share the Holiday Spirit - Donate Food and Toys to Those in Need

Friday, December 20, 2013 - 12:00pm

The City of Lake Oswego is accepting winter clothing, toy and food donations for families in need living in Clackamas County.

We will be collecting gently-used coats, mittens, gloves, scarves, and blankets, and new unwrapped toys.  We continue to accept food donations, as we do throughout the year, and encourage folks to be especially generous at holiday time to help the many families in need this year.

Donated items may be dropped off at these convenient sites: City Hall, West End Building, Adult Community Center, and Main Fire Station.  Ranger Ben will also be accepting donations in person on Saturday, December 14, at 6 p.m. during the Christmas Ship Parade at Foothills Park, 199 Foothills Road.  Stop by and meet Ranger Ben, and enjoy a sweet treat and the twinkling lights of the Christmas Ship Parade.

The donations will be distributed through our partnership with several non-profit organizations, including the Oregon Food Bank.  Please make your donations by noon on December 20 to allow time for delivery before the holidays.

For more information, please contact Diana Smith-Bouwer in the Citizen Information Center at 503-635-0257.
