@Drop Boxes in Portland
In 1997, Labor’s Community Service Agency, Inc., a United Way Community Partner and local 501(c)3 charitable organization, started a program that has become one of the most appreciated events in the Organized Labor community. The Presents from Partners toy drive and December Giving Party was created to help unemployed parents throughout Greater Portland provide holiday joy to their children. Since then, we have opened our arms and included families from Right 2 Dream, Snow Cap Charities and Bethal Lutheran Youth Drop In Center. Presents from Partners has received national AFL-CIO media recognition for its outreach, and we aspire to increase the number of families served annually according to need. Sponsorship from partners like KBOO make it possible. This event brings holiday joy to families who are suffering layoffs, financial stress or homelessness. Referred families come for a delicious, hot catered lunch, a visit with Santa and Mrs Claus, stocking stuffers with handmade stockings, face painting and a wonderful children’s selection of toys to take home. The children even get to pick out a small gift to give to their parents so that they also may enjoy the pleasure of giving this holiday. It is literally a tour de force of the Labor Movement and their allies.
