p:ear is looking for local partners for our annual holiday Giving Tree.
Every winter, our youth are looking for basic needs such as socks, backpacks, bus tickets, gift cards, art supplies and other items that are around $25. The Giving Tree helps us supply our youth with the things they need throughout the year.
How you can help
p:ear youth hand-decorate ornaments for display at your business, school, or church. Employees, students, people from your congregation select an item to purchase and donate to p:ear. Collect all the items and bring to p:ear before p:ear's Christmas Brunch on December 25th. No wrapping required!
Your gifts make a difference
Last year, the Giving Tree brought in nearly $5,400 of gifts. Youth are able to use bus tickets to get to and from work, backpacks for carrying school books and art supplies, and socks and ponchos to stay warm and dry. A HUGE thank you to our 2010 participants: Portland Center Stage, Bridgeport United Church of Christ, OHSU, Floating World Comics, Anka Gallery, TwentyFourSeven, Cupcake Jones and Arabella Salon.
