  • Binky Patrol Comforting Covers for Kids
    Binky blankets help to comfort youth from newborns to 18-year-olds, and they are distributed at locations such as clinics, foster-care agencies, and shelters for victims of domestic violence, as well as to those experiencing homelessness. Though Binky Patrol receives fabric donations from several sources, the organization is in need of rolls of batting to fill its blankets to make them soft and plush.

  • Friendly House
    When the First Presbyterian Church founded Friendly House—then named the Marshall Street Community Center—in 1926, it was dedicated to a spiritual mission. But when the 1930s gave rise to the Great Depression, its focus quickly shifted to social concerns out of a desire to help those affected by the economic catastrophe. Friendly House’s scope and reach continued to expand over the next few decades, and today it enriches the lives of community members from every age group with educational, recreational, and life-sustaining services. The neighborhood center and social-services agency help prepare children for school through playgroup and preschool programs. Friendly House also provides housing assistance and transportation for seniors and homeless families and brings the community together through martial-arts classes and other workshops.

  • Oregon Food Bank
    Oregon Food Bank seeks to address the problem of hunger through local advocacy and by distributing food to relief agencies such as food banks, soup kitchens, and shelters in Oregon and Clark County, Washington. The organization's network of partner agencies then provides that food directly to people in need. Oregon Food Bank obtains nutritious fare through a combination of bulk purchases and donations. As the need for hunger relief has increased during the last few years, so has the number of Oregonians and Washingtonians whom Oregon Food Bank serves.

  • Friends of The Children
    With more than 60 million albums sold, the dynamic duo of Daryl Hall and John Oates has amassed an army of fans via their ageless anthems, silky ballads, and dance-floor staples since the mid-1970s. In this special benefit for the youth-mentorship organization Friends of the Children, the formerly pompadoured Daryl Hall and the estranged moustache of John Oates share prized selections from their box set, Do What You Want, Be What You Are, which encompasses their ceaseless career. Armed with a songbook packed with perennial favorites such as "Maneater" and "Rich Girl," the fireproof voices and unabashed showmanship of Daryl Hall and John Oates leave devotees and newfound fans happier than a kid in a hardware store.

  • Ride Connection
    Ride Connection’s weekday door-to-door-transportation service furnishes free rides to adults ages 60 and older and to people with disabilities, connecting them to medical-care facilities, grocery stores, workplaces, and the homes of friends and family members. The nonprofit doesn't charge participants a fee for its largely volunteer-driven services, thus ensuring that those with a low-income receive equal access to transportation. For participants with limited mobility, ready access to transportation can grant a sense of independence by allowing them to travel outside of their homes in order to meet day-to-day needs.
