Northwest Housing Alternatives Annual Holiday Toy Drive

The Annie Ross House and Northwest Housing Alternatives are looking for individuals and businesses to help local children experiencing homelessness or living at NHA properties receive holiday gifts.

For many residents of NHA’s affordable housing and almost all of the parents at the Annie Ross House, purchasing holiday presents for their children is a luxury they cannot afford. We encourage individuals and local businesses to host toy drives so our parents can save money for permanent housing and their children can still have a positive holiday experience.

Give us a call and we can provide you with the materials and signage necessary to host a Holiday Bin at your place of business. Contact us at 503 654 1007 x109 or

If you are an individual who would like to donate, please bring new, unwrapped toys to the locations below, or our Milwaukie offices.

More than just a place to sleep, the Annie Ross House provides a safe, home-like environment to local families experiencing homelessness. Our Family Support Specialists connect families to social services and help them transition from homelessness to permanent affordable housing.

Stability is important for these kids and opening a gift during the holidays makes life during their transition from homelessness a little more normal.

Please contact us if you would like to help. You can make a big difference in a child’s life, engage co-workers in a worthy cause, and help children enjoy the holidays
