Please call us first before you bring large items (furniture, etc.) or if you are working with a group to organize a donation of many items. We are always happy to answer your questions about whether an item is suitable!

2018 Back to School Supply Drive

Help make going back to school a little easier for the families we serve! Check out our full wish list of school supplies on Amazon!

For a child, the first day of school is always a mixture of excitement and anxiety. Having all the right supplies helps ease the rite of passage into a new phase of life, a new grade or a new school. For parents who are in recovery and in process of rebuilding their lives, being able to purchase all the necessary first-day-of-school supplies can be a significant challenge and its own source of anxiety.

This is where you come in!

You can help make a difference in a family's life by donating to Central City Concern’s school supply drive. Items will be distributed to the students living in our alcohol- and drug-free family housing communities.

Items can be purchased through our Amazon wishlist and delivered directly to CCC. Alternatively, refer to the Amazon wishlist to purchase or collect similar Items and drop them off at CCC's Administration office (232 NW 6th Ave., Portland) during regular business hours (8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.).

If you have any questions please contact Donor Relations Manager Catharine Hunter at 503-200-3903 or

Thank you for your support!
