About The Store

The Project Lemonade store is open year-round to serve the needs of foster youth. Each year we serve 2,000 youth from over 24 counties in Oregon and SW Washington. The store provides a welcoming environment staffed with trained volunteers, where youth can select from a range of new and nearly new clothes, shoes, backpacks and accessories.

Make an Appointment

Foster youth ages 5 & up with an open DHS Child Welfare case or home safety are eligible to shop. All youth must have an appointment to shop. Please enter youth’s name when making the appointment.

Shopping FAQ

  • Foster youth ages 5 & up with an open DHS Child Welfare case or home safety are eligible to shop. We ask that youth shop only once per summer.

  • 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 so they can benefit from the empowering experience of shopping. Minor shoppers must be accompanied.

  • We are staffed with trained volunteers who are able to answer questions or serve as a personal shopping assistant if desired.

  • The closest parking garage is the one on the corner of NE 9th Ave and NE Halsey St. We are located at the west end of the mall.

  • If you have any shopping special requests/needs (uniforms, special sizes, etc), please let us know in advance at schedule@projectlemonadepdx.org.
