THPRD Announces Holiday GIFT CARD Drive for Families in Need
Tualatin Hills Park & Recreation District is partnering with the Beaverton School District and Beaverton Family Promise to create a warmer, brighter holiday season for Beaverton area families and students in need with our annual Holiday Giving Drive.
This year things will be a bit different. THPRD is asking patrons to donate gift cards exclusively (no toys or clothing will be accepted). “Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we thought it was best to collect just gift cards this year,” said Holly Thompson, Communications Director. “The gift cards will be distributed to Beaverton School District families and families served by Beaverton Family Promise, which offers emergency shelter.”
Purchasing gift cards is a great way to support students. Gift cards give families the freedom to buy personal items, necessities, or gifts. All donation amounts are being accepted.
Tips for Gift Card Donations:
- Any amount is helpful: Organizers are asking for gift cards in the amount of $5, $10, $20, $25, $50, or more. All amounts are welcome.
- Variety of Stores is Good: Gift cards to grocery stores, local businesses, or large retailers, are all welcome.
THPRD will be accepting gift cards through Dec. 15.
Gift card donations can be mailed to: THPRD, c/o Holiday Gift Card Drive, 15707 SW Walker Road, Beaverton, OR 97006.
