Pamplin Media Group – The homeless children of Clackamas County are asking for holiday donations

Wishlist of Items Released by Provincial Officials; you can buy gifts in different price ranges

Clackamas County has a wish list to give holiday gifts to children whose families have recently become homeless. Gifts are needed by December 12 for children of all ages, including middle school and high school children.

Social Services Housing Pod offers programs to support families with housing instability. Each program benefits from the generous donations made through the wishlist. With the donations, parents can give a gift to their children.

Each item donated from the wish list will arrive at the Housing Pod office and then be delivered to a family with a child or children in need of holiday magic on Dec. 22, said Social Services case manager Cindy Garcia.COURTESY PHOTO: CLACKAMAS COUNTY — Social Services case managers Serena Powell and Tito Mendoza prepare to deliver wish list gifts to families

“We like to call our office Santa’s workshop because we also have the pleasure of preparing presents for families, knowing how much the donated gifts mean to them this time of year,” said Garcia.
