Help us ensure that every young person at Outside In receives a gift for the holidays.

Outside In is committed to offering community and support to the homeless youth we work with. Together we can help homeless youth know they are cared for and valued.

Our goal is to make sure that each homeless youth at Outside In receives a gift this holiday season. Whether you participate as an individual, family, faith community, or workplace, you have the opportunity to brighten the lives of the youth we work with (primarily ages 17-24).

Participating is easy. Simply choose items from our wishlist at Target or donate new items from our Holiday Wish List.

This year we have generated online registries so that you can give while also practicing the safety precautions that will help keep us all healthy. You may pick out specific gift items from our gift registries or donate gift cards that allow young people the rare opportunity to pick out items for themselves.


To deliver all the gifts on time, we ask that your present arrives at Outside In by Wednesday, December 22. 

If you have gift items to drop off, please reach out to me, Outside In’s Holiday Giving Coordinator, Sydney Rohrs: or 971-386-8933. We have specific drop-off times at a downtown location to support health and safety practices when donating items.

You have helped us before and we hope you will continue to be a part of the supportive community we count on. The caring experience of the holidays you give homeless youth today will be remembered by them long after they have their own homes, families, and holiday traditions.
