Donate Items or Services

Orangewood Foundation appreciates donations of items and professional services for our foster and community youth. Our biggest need throughout the year is new, full-size personal hygiene items and non-perishable food for youth struggling to make ends meet. In December, we rely on support from the community to help us provide holiday gifts to our youth. The holiday season, with images of happy families and abundant presents, can be especially difficult for current and former foster youth. Holiday gifts let them know they are not forgotten. Gift cards are especially desired by our teens. Donations of professional services (e.g., dental care, vision care, internships and job placement, etc.) are also needed.

  • OCTOBER NEED: Help refill our hygiene closet with new full-size shampoo and body wash! We’re running low for the toiletry kits we distribute to our youth. Also, drop off new earbuds or headphones of any kind at our front desk! Our youth find that having earbuds or headphones help them tune out distractions – whether they are using the computers at our onsite resource center or are homeless trying to sleep.
