Donate Supplies

New & Gently Used

Please be mindful that your donations are seasonal.

Rose Haven’s facility where we receive donations is the same building where we distribute services to women and children in need. We appreciate your donations, but have very limited capacity and space at our shelter.

We must limit our donors to no more than 3 large garbage bags a week of gently used clothing unless you have made a special appointment. Larger donations can be accommodated only with advance notice.

There are certain things we can’t get enough of, such as luggage, sleeping bags, plus sized clothing, work attire ( including special shoes for restaurants/construction), jeans and leggings, so call us if you have something you think could be helpful or if you have any questions. If you would like to make an appointment email or call 503-248-6364 x-303. Most of our guests are in extreme need and will wear what they receive out the door, so make sure it is clean and ready to wear outside today.

The biggest difference you can make for Rose Haven is by making a financial donation. Thank you for understanding and helping us spread the word.

Rose Haven provides vital supplies to nearly than 3,500 women and children annually because of supporters like you. We believe in promoting dignity and respect for all our women and children by providing them with clean, quality clothing donations and products.

Rose Haven has limited human resources to manage in-kind donations throughout the week. Please assist us by sorting through your items prior to drop off to ensure:

  • Clothing is in new or like-new condition and clean/ready to wear
  • Items are on our needed list (below)
  • Donations are in season
  • Children’s clothing must be brand new

Rose Haven accepts in-kind donations on Monday and Thursday afternoons between 1-4pm, or by appointment only. Due to limited onsite storage, we are unable to accept large quantities of donations without an appointment. Please call 503-248-6364 x303 or email if you have questions. Thank you!

We are currently only accepting children’s clothing if it is brand new.
