Thank you for considering a donation to Northwest Children’s Outreach!
We are a 501(c)3 nonprofit corporation, so any donations are tax-deductible (please see your financial advisor for details on charitable donations).
We appreciate your financial donations, there are also details below about times to donate clothing at our centers.
NCO has also created an Amazon Wishlist with some of the current needs from our five centers. See below for the link to our Wishlist and please be sure to choose the shipping address of Northwest Children’s Outreach if you choose to make a purchase from the list. Once we receive the item/items, we will distribute them in a timely manner to the center with the most need. Be sure to keep your receipt for tax reporting purposes.
DONATION DROP-OFF TIMES
Please do not leave donations outside of buildings when we are closed as this jeopardizes our lease agreements with our building donors. Donations found outside will be discarded due to the unknown weather and bug exposure that damages NCO inventory within the centers. Thank you for your consideration!
Thank you so much for your generous donation to help kids in need! We are grateful for your support! Please check for location information and closures.
PHYSICAL DONATION GUIDELINES
We are also asking for physical donations, but need your help in order to make this work for our limited volunteer staff. Each Center will be to receive donations from the community. Like everything related to COVID-19, we have donation rules:
- Donations need to be NEW or LIKE NEW (No stains, tears, missing buttons or zippers, shoes must be clean) – Think “First Day of School’ish”
- Donations need to be washed
Several of our 460 Care Providing Agencies have shared that NCO is their ONLY source for children’s items. We are asking for your help in protecting our staff while continuing our mission of “Standing in the Gap for Kids in Need”
