Program Specific Needs

Catholic Charities of Oregon is not a donation center, but we do have a need for select donation items that align with client needs.

If you have a very unique gift, like a house full of furniture, contact us and we will see what we can do. 

Due to our limited storage and staff capacity, we are not able to accept every in-kind donation offered. We prioritize the needs of our clients and are grateful for your support of our efforts. 

Contact Us:

donations@ccoregon.org or 503-688-2564

Our capacity to pick up in-kind goods is very limited. If this is a barrier for you, we encourage you to reach out to some of our partners with your donation opportunity.

Once we receive your call or email  our staff will reach out to our programs to confirm there is a need for your item(s). If we are unable to accept your donation we will recommend one or more of our partner organizations. We do our best to respond to every inquiry within 72 hours. Thank you for your patience.
