2017 Holiday Family Program

Every December, William Temple House provides a delicious, nutritious holiday food box and children’s gifts to 100 families from throughout the Portland area. This year’s Holiday Family Program will take place on December 11 and 12, bringing volunteers, donors, and staff together with clients for a heartwarming event in the spirit of the season. You can help us brighten the holidays for families in our community by making a gift to the Holiday Family Program online or over the phone by calling 503.715.0265. Donations will be used to purchase additional children’s gifts and food items to put the finishing touches on the holiday food boxes families receive through the program. We are also collecting new, unwrapped toys for children ages 1-14 and gift cards for teens. Donations can be dropped off at our reception desk through December 4.
