Central City Concern welcomes in-kind donations from individuals and groups including churches, civic organizations, schools, corporations and more! In addition to the standard needs listed below, we use our e-newsletter and  Facebook page to make announcements regarding urgent needs.

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!

Our Cooking Matters Program Needs Your Help!

Central City Concern's Cooking Matters program works with our community members to address a number of common issues including food insecurity, weight gain, hypertension, coronary issues, and diabetes or pre-diabetes. Participants gain the skills and knowledge needed for healthy eating including following recipes, meal planning, and shopping on a budget.

After our successful partnership with the Oregon Food Bank, we are now on our own and in need of the supplies to keep this program going. Read more about the impact the Cooking Matters program makes!

Our wish list can be found on Amazon and we are happy to accept these items used as well.

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

Thank you for your support!
