    We need your help! This is our largest fundraiser of the year and we could use some help gathering donations. Our goal is to have as many families contribute as possible. If we all do a little, it will help a lot!

    See our donation sign-up sheet for lists of items to donate, including savory food for our buffet, or desserts for the Dessert dash!
    Consider asking a local business to sponsor or donate a gift certificate. Use our handy business procurement letter to help you make your request.

    Here are some examples of donations we'd love:

    • Desserts for the Dessert Dash fundraiser. Each dessert needs to feed 10 people.
    • Savory items for the buffet. Items should be small and easy to serve, and please bring enough of any item so that not too many people are disappointed. There will be forks, but no knives, spoons, or bowls, so alas that famous chili won’t work for this. Think cocktail party. Some suggestions-
      • dumplings
      • sushi
      • grilled veggies
      • chicken wings
      • stuffed mushrooms
      • things on skewers
      • meatballs
      • mini quiche
    Food can be dropped off in the old gym between 3 and 6pm on the day of the event. We will not have warming facilities, so please bring it warm, or bring something that works at room temperature.

    • Overnight trips (beach house, mountain cabin, etc)
    • Tickets to sporting events
    • Music, theater events
    • Dinner gift certificates
    • Spa or gift basket etc.
    • Handmade jewelry or crafts
    • Airline or train tickets
    • Ski or snowboard tickets (a day at Mt. Hood, etc.)
    If you have any questions, please contact our SSOJ program chairs Amy Geoffroy ( and Kelly McCollum ( Thanks for your support!
