Give a Vehicle

Help CSC by donating your vehicle!

Have an “old hunk ‘o’ junk” in the yard? We’ll take it!

Donate your vehicle to CSC!

CSC partners with Volunteers of America of Oregon to make this program possible. Volunteers of America of Oregon offers free towing, and you can write the vehicle off on your tax return. CSC receives 60% of the vehicles value, and the rest goes to cover costs of Volunteers of America.

You can give your vehicle by filling out this form.

If you wish to speak to a CSC staff member about vehicle donation, call 503-560-6178 or email info@cscoregon.org.


In-kind Donations

You can make a difference.

Giving Food, Clothing, and Hygiene Items
We are open Monday-Friday from 10 a.m.-3:30 p.m. (at a minimum) for in-kind donations. Please see our list below, but generally, “in-kind donations” are food, clothing, hygiene products, etc. Please give them to a volunteer on the south side of the building (the Fred Meyer side). There is a half-door labeled “Donations” and a doorbell to ring. Someone will come to assist you!

If these times don’t work for you, or if you have questions about giving, please call 503-771-7914 or email info@cscoregon.org.

Volunteer

CSC serves over 5,000 people in need each year.

With just a handful of staff, our volunteers are vital to providing our clients with a high level of service.

CSC relies on a robust team of volunteers to make and serve meals, pick up donated goods, assemble food boxes, cut hair, and connect our clients with crucial services. Over 300 people volunteer at CSC in any year.

Organize a Drive

Our clients are always in need of non-perishable food items, clothes, bedding, and hygiene items. One great way to support CSC while involving your neighbors or community is by coordinating a drive. It’s also a great way to get your child’s school or your workplace volunteering together. Download our drive flyer, and get started today!
