2018 Summer shopping event


A FREE shopping event for foster youth ages 5 and up. Our 7th annual free shopping event enables foster youth to begin their school year with new and nearly new clothing, shoes and accessories. 


August 2018: Open Wednesday-Sunday, closed Monday & Tuesday.


Project Lemonade, 1008 Lloyd Center Mall, on the 2nd level across from See's Candy.

Am I eligible?

Youth are eligible to shop if they have an open case with DHS Child Welfare. This includes bio-families with home safety plans.

What to expect:

  • Adult shopping guardian may be asked to show ID (driver's license, etc) at check-in.  (It's ok to shop with someone other than the person listed on the appointment, for example if the caseworker made the appointment but the bio parent is the one shopping with the youth). 
  • Shoppers will receive a checklist of items they can shop for during their visit. The list will include shoes, pants, tops, outerwear, underwear, socks, accessories, a backpack and more. We have changing rooms onsite.
  • We encourage youth to come to the store to shop if possible. Minor shoppers must be accompanied.
  • We are staffed with volunteers who are able to answer questions or be a personal shopping assistant if desired.
  • The closest parking garage is the one on the corner of NE 9th Ave and NE Halsey St.
  • If you have any shopping special requests/needs, please let us know in advance at schedule@projectlemonadepdx.org.
