Join us for our many ongoing and/or annual events at the Milwaukie Center! The Friends of the Milwaukie Center is a nonprofit organization whose sole purpose is to support the programs and services of the Milwaukie Center. We do this through a variety of fundraising activities and you can help by getting involved in any of these activities: Bingo Bring your friends for an evening of fun, refreshments and cash prizes! Every Thursday evening at 6:30 pm. Gift Shop Handcrafted items for sale at reasonable prices! The Gift Shop has hundreds of consignees who offer their treasures for sale. All profits benefit the programs and services at the Center.
Newspaper Drop A large container is in the south parking lot for the collection of newspapers for recycling.
Annual Campaign Every year, people in the community generously support the Friends of the Milwaukie Center with their donations. From $5.00 to $500.00, contributors know they are providing much needed support for the Milwaukie Center and its valuable services.
Vehicle Donation Cars, trucks, boats and motorbikes may be donated to the Friends of the Milwaukie Center. A receipt can be provided for these tax deductible donations.
Quilting The dedicated women of the Friends Quilters meet every Thursday morning. Throughout the year, this group of volunteers hand quilt for local customers with all proceeds of their loving talents supporting the Milwaukie Center.
