Project Lemonade provides foster youth with a back-to-school shopping experience and offers support to inspire self-esteem and promote success.

In 2018, Project Lemonade served 2,000 foster youth from over 24 counties in Oregon and Washington. Thank you to the 750 volunteers who logged over 3,000 hours, Oregon DHS, and our various community partners who support us with inventory, clothing drives, grants, and pro bono work. We are deeply grateful for the time and energy you give to Project Lemonade and to foster youth.

Spring Break Donation Drive Challenge.png

Organize a Drive!

Organize a donation drive this spring break to support foster youth! Items currently in demand:

- Belts! Belts are an unsung hero for youth as they grow and change sizes.

- Sports caps/hats! We currently have no brimmed sports hats and are looking for a supply! These in-demand accessories are a favorite of shoppers.

- New Socks! Mens, Womens, Boys and Girls socks can be an easy drive item and are hugely valuable to foster youth shoppers!
